SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS Luke - 15: 1-32

Read 100 Times

Luke 15: 1-32


1. There are three figures in the story of the Prodigal Son. The father is a symbol of an unconditional love. Perhaps you can recall someone showing love to you in a way that showed great forgiveness and acceptance. Have there been times when you have also loved in this way?

2. You may be able to identify with the younger son at different stages of his journey. Be sure to follow it to the point where it becomes a good news story for you - when you ‘came to yourself.' Where and when have you experienced a homecoming after a time of exile and alienation.

3. Do not neglect the older son. In contrast to his father he was very judgemental and resentful towards his younger brother. Perhaps you have experienced these attitudes in others towards you, or in yourself towards others. What were those experiences like for you? What did they teach you?
