The parable of the prodigal son is not about the prodigal son.

Jesus told a parable about a son who went away and spent his inheritance. That’s where the name comes from. But the parable is really about the father, first and foremost. And it’s a parable that tells us about the creator of the universe.

John Rallison

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, though I am continually growing in understanding what that means. I believe that God loves everyone all the time. The world was created for love and whenever we veer from love, we miss the mark of who we were created to be.
