What kind of heart do you have? When the prodigal son returned home there were two very different responses. He was joyfully welcomed by the father. He was obviously despised by the older brother. We never now where someone has been or what they have been through, so seek to show a fatherly heart!
The lost son is a story of a wandering son, a compassionate father, and a glorious reconciliation. As we read the Bible the Father sets the example for us as earthly fathers.
