            I can still remember a story which I was told a long time ago by my grandfather. That day, my grandfather called and made me sit beside him in the dazzling moon light. The whole place was quiet. “Tom”, I would like to tell you a story, “he told me.” I am ready grandpa,” I replied.   

“The topic of my story is the Prodigal Son,” He began. “A long time ago, there lived a man who had two sons, the younger of the two sons told his father to give him a share of his estate which h was to inherit. So his father divided his property between him and his brother.

     The next day, the younger brother left home with all he was given and travelled to a distant country. There, h spent everything wastefully. After he had spent all, a great famine occurred in that country and he found it very difficult to feed himself. He became very worried as hunger and thirst mad him very weak and tired.

      When he came back to his senses, he went to his father to ask for forgiveness. When his father saw him afar, the father ran to him, threw is arms around his neck and kissed him. His clothes were changed and a great party was organized for him, he concluded. Anytime I think of this story, I see human beings as the prodigal son and God as the father. He cares for us even when w offend Him.
