Summary: A wise old man once said, "A lot of good luck is undeserved but then so is a lot bad luck..." The younger of the "two sons" wished he hadn’t had his run of bad luck. Let’s examine the Portrait Of A Prodigal together!
No other picture in the Word of God speaks louder than the example Jesus’ gives us about the love and mercy of God as seen in the Portrait of a Prodigal.
We all have had our own share of rebellion. Yet, God in His infinite wisdom and love waits for us all to return. Nowhere is this exemplified than in Luke’s account of the run-a-way son. Let’s examine the picture together and notice what we see!
I. His Devoted Parents (15:11-12)
II. His Downward PATH (15:11-13a)
III. His Dangerous Plan (15:11-13b)

V. His Despairing Plea (15:11-17)
VI. His Desperate Proposal (15:11-19)
