One of the most touching and powerful parables of Jesus Christ is the parable of the prodigal son, in Swedish the parable of the lost son. It is a message about someone who lives in his sins, just to one day wake up and realize that he has lost everything and has nothing here in life. Sad and poor he starts turning back to his father, hoping to maybe at least have food on the table, but is suprised to see that the father gives him everything back, for free.
It is also a parable of the son who stays at home, working hard to please his father, not seeing all the good things that his merciful father gives him everyday. This is a picture of a believer in Jesus Christ, working hard and trying to please God with good deeds.
And above all it’s a parable which showes us the Heart of Our Heavenly Father, how Merciful and good He is, running towards His “lost son”, happy to see him home again alive, not even mentioning the sins he had committed when he wasted his Fathers money.
