“And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.”
King James Version (KJV)
15:13 He took a journey into a far country - Far from God: God was not in all his thoughts: And squandered away his substance - All the grace he had received.
Lu 15:13 Into a far country. Wandered far away from the Father's house, from God. Wasted his substance. All do in that far country. The worldly life is a wasted life. It is more baneful to waste our spiritual opportunities and resources than to waste earthly goods.
