Let The Prodigal Learn

The Prodigal Son came home to his father with a repentant heart.

The father didn’t go chasing after his ungrateful, rebellious offspring. In allowing this, the father made possible the necessary firing process to soften his son’s heart.

Letting the son learn through his mistakes, learning the lessons of humility, service, honor, obedience, and loyalty, the father finally reaped his reward.

Yes, I said the father received the reward of a loving, responsible, grateful, and worthy son after he hit rock bottom.

Tough love will tenderize the heart. Obstinacy and rebellion are tempered by reality.

Yet if a parent shows too tender a hand in child rearing, setting no boundaries, requiring no accountability, tough times will follow.

Let The Prodigal Learn…
