There was a farmer with two sons. His elder son was hardworking and happy but his younger son was idle and bored.
One day the younger son asked his dad for his share of money and begged to be let go. The dad gave him the money.
He went to far off town. There the people saw he have a lot of money and everyone wanted to be his friend. Soon his money were all used up and none of his "friends" were there for him.
He had to find work and his bosses were horrible to him. Sometimes he don't even get enough to eat. This makes him think of his generous dad who treat all servants well.
He decided to go home and beg his dad to take him back as a servant of the house.
His dad did not gloat when he say the waylaid son come back him with tail between his legs. In fact the dad immediately ask the servants to bring his son a new change of clothes and welcome him back warmly.
Mamarazzi said the same goes for the Lord. He would welcome his children home with an open arms though they have been naughty.
Oh ya...Mamarazzi have a new blog. Mamakucingmeow. It's mostly for ranting about books that she love and those that she disliked.
