The Father’s Heart
This story emphasizes the graciousness of the father more than the sinfulness and brokenness of the two sons. We all have a home with God, both the sinner and the righteous. We are all in need of God's grace. Jesus shares this scandalous story to show the scandalous love and radical grace of the father. A love and a grace that is our great hope no matter who we are or what we are going through.
