Glad to hear that your friend is now couseling women. Every morning when I open my eyes, I realize God's got something for me to do.

4 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ PrayingPraying

Comments: Thanks Wendy,
I must admit, I had a wrong understanding of the word "prodigal" as well. In my weak mind, I always thought it had something to do with "returning". Thanks for pointing out that it means "wasting resources". Oh, that I not waste His Word! Psalm 19:7 The law of the Lord is perfect , converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure,enlightening the eyes, The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever: the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether... With His Word, I am able to avoid anxiety as I daily look up and lift up my head looking for his call. Come Lord Jesus!

Shout AMEN!Amen ~ PrayingPraying

Comments: Thanks again for another great article! I DO have a question that I hope you can expound on in your down-to-earth, easy to understand manner. You stated that parables teach through analogies, which is what I used to think until someone pointed out Luke 8:9-10 to me; parables are used to prevent you from understanding unless you were one of His disciples. In other words, I thought I understood the analogies, but that was not what they really meant. Very confusing! Could you write an article about that?

2 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ PrayingPraying

Comments: Thank you for this article, Wendy. I really needed to hear it today. I love the story of the prodigal son, but I always felt that it has been titled incorrectly. It's true that the story depicts the deplorable way the son treats his father and how he squanders his inheritance, only to have his humble return home to be celebrated by his father. But, to me, the story is really about the love, compassion, and grace of the father. We are all prodigal people, but it is only by the grace of our Father that we have been restored to Him and all that He wants to give us. He is a loving, doting Father to all of us who have accepted His ultimate gift of the sacrifice of His Son on the cross to ransom us from our sin. I'm just sayin', I think the story should be called, "The Parable of the Gracious Father."
