“Parables are the chosen tactic of Jesus to convey the heart of the Kingdom of God. Christ used them to illustrate the love of God and to understand what He desires for us. And, perhaps, there may be no more famous parable than the parable of the Prodigal son.
If the teaching of Jesus is likened to a lake, this parable would be one of the clearest spots where we can see all the way to the bottom. Through this story, we can grasp the depths of God’s heart for humanity while bringing our hearts into check. This prodigal story will lead us back to Jesus while propelling us forward to living like Him.”
