The Prodigal Son by Dan Corner

The parable of the Prodigal Son that is found in the Gospel of Luke has been retold in literature, music, art, and on the stage. The basic storyline of the Prodigal Son acts as a morality tale. The story itself is about the younger of two sons who asks for his share of his inheritance before his father’s death. The younger son squanders away all his money in a distant country and is forced to take a lowly, embarrassing job just to survive. When his job is failing to provide for his basic needs, the son has a realization that his father’s workers have much more than he and if he returns, he can beg his father for forgiveness and ask for work. When the son returns, he is welcomed immediately by the father and they celebrate because he got saved again (Lk 15:24).
