The story of the prodigal son is found in Luke. It tells the story of a man who had two sons. The younger one asked his father for his share of the inheritance and off he went to another country to "live it up with parties and women." As always happens he went through his money, just as a severe famine was going through the country.
After spending time feeding pigs with almost nothing to eat he decided to return to his father and ask that he might work as a hired hand, not worthy to be counted as a son. His father however rejoiced in the return of his son and had a celebration.
The story shows how God celebrates our return (and our love for us), even though we have wasted part of our life that God has given us.
This amazing story is now available in English and Spanish. It can be used either domestically or taken on a mission trip.
