The Elder Son–Chapter 15

By E. Williams

This book began on June 24.  You may want to go there to begin reading.

“Let’s sit on these chairs under the tree and talk about hat, Honey,” Ron said.

“Please don’t tell me that I should be sweet and kind and greet her with love and kisses and let her walk all over me again.”

“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,” Ron said, smiling at me.  “That’s what Jesus taught us to pray, you know.”

“I know God says to forgive sinners if they repent.  I just don’t believe that Janet is really sorry.  She’s done this so often, and every time Mom and Dad get hurt.  I really don’t want her home again.  And I don’t want to talk about it any more.”

“You don’t have to talk.  Just listen while I tell you a story,”  Ron said.  “A certain man had two sons.  The elders son was a good son.  He served his father faithfully and never disobeyed him in any way.  The younger son was different.  He didn’t want to stay and work for his father.  He wanted to see the world.  He asked his father for his share of the money his father would leave him so that he could go away and enjoy life.

“His father gave him the money, and the boy went to a far country where he wasted it in wild and foolish living.  When he had spent it all his so-called friends left him and he had to get a job feeding pigs.  One day he came to himself. ‘What am I doing here?’ he asked himself.  ‘I’ll go back to my father and tell him I’m sorry.  Maybe he’ll let me work as a servant.’
