Now I don't believe in preaching to the season, but follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and this time the Spirit is leading me to preach on Thankfulness.

    based on 3 ratings
     | 4,297 views

    Today we will look at a familiar passage of scripture commonly called the parable of the prodigal son but I feel a fitting title would be the parable of the good father. We see the selfishness of the two sons set off against the love of the good father.

    Introduction Today we will be studying a fairly familar passage of scripture, familar to most of us as the parable of the prodigal son but most aptly called in my opinion the parable of the good father.
