Discussion for Luke 15

  • Rach
    Pursue after Christ like the shepherd pursued after the one lost sheep.
    Our life is not our own. It is God's.
  • A disciple
    Son of David; I like your kind and non-condemning way to look at it, but I think the younger son was rather looking for the party than a way to make his living. He squandered all his money on sin and selfishness, and brought disgrace to his father's name; and his repentance was marked by acknowledging the truth that he was not fit to be called anymore a son, and acceptance of his punishment.
  • Son of David
    The prodigal son did what everyone does. He goes off into the world seeking his fortune, his way in the world. For some find great wealth but it doesn't sustain them. Some fall between the cracks and are in want. It is they who are most likely to return to the Father and ask for forgiveness. And the Father will turn none away who ask. Those still in the world will not ask.

    Jesus has already forgiven us, even in the middle of our transgression. All we need to do is accept His forgiveness.
  • Jerry
    verse 20-Two points: The son was always a son before, during and after his departure. He didn't waste his being a son. He wasted his connection, benefit, relationship, enjoyment of being a son. He didn't return asking to be a son again. He was hungry. His hunger is what brought him home.
    The main character in the story is the father.He ran to his son and welcomed him home before his son spoke
  • Anne
