PRODIGALS RETURNING HOME
A wise son makes a glad father,
But a foolish son is the grief of his mother.
1. FATHERS LOVE TO BOAST
A son who makes good is the great joy of his father. Fathers love to boast in the accomplishments of their sons.
Nothing like a father who is glad to show off his kids.
2. FATHERS CUT OFF FOOLISH SONS
Foolish sons bring great shame to their fathers. It is hard for a father to sit in the gates of the community with his peers – when his sons are acting as prodigals.
He naturally wants to hide his shame from his peers.
The wise father keeps his arms open to welcome home the lost son – and humbly asks for help from his community of faith.
3. MOTHERS LOVE TO PRAY
Mothers love to pray for their kids. Their delight is in calling upon the Lord on behalf of their family.
When their sons are wise there is much praise.
When their sons are stupid there is much grief and intercession.
4. MOTHERS GRIEVE FOR THEIR LOST CHILDREN
When one of her children acts foolishly and rejects her faith – a mother grieves for that child as one who is lost.
The rebellion of children – brings incredible pain to their parents.
5. FOOLISH SONS BRING GRIEF AND SHAME
Watch a son who has chosen the way of fools. Everywhere they go – they bring grief and shame.
Their grand schemes look so impressive – but they are built on sand – and everyone knows it is just a matter of time.
The cycle of foolishness repeats itself over and over again.
YOUR LOST SONS ARE RETURNING HOME AND YOUR JOY SHALL BE FULL
