Cool little tit bits stumbled over in the last 24 hour
Parable of the lost son
There is a tragically ironic moment early in the parable.
When the son asks for his inheritance (so he can leave the family estate) he is in affect saying to the father "I wish you were dead".
However, listen to the father's reply when the son finally returns after months/years of seperation;
"For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found"
Pick it up?
......how cool is that!
