The Prodigal Son

The parable of the prodigal son is a familiar one, but many people have false concepts or misunderstandings about its message.  The story tells of a son who, after demanding his share of the estate from his father, left for a different country and took up an extravagant and wasteful lifestyle.  After spending his fortune, and finding himself hungry, he returns home to apologize to and serve his father, who welcomes him with open arms.
