  1. When the father saw his son walking a long way off he made a wide smile and raced towards him with a rushing spirit of love and when his son asked for a place as a servant in his fathers house his father would not listen. Straight away his father asked his servnt for his best coat and his best ring to be put on his son and threw a party inviting all his servants and all his friends and gave his son the mater seat at the table.
    The lords prayer is talking about how God wants us to ask him for what ever we need and for example when Adam and Eve made their clothes out of fig leaves God dissaproved and made them a coat each out of animal fur.This shows that God will help us and always will. If you compare these to phrases are similar because the father wants the best for his son which includes a happy life warm bed a nice family and a comforting home in the lords prayer Jesus taught his deciples to ask God for their daily bread because Jesus knew God is our father and wants us to be warm safe happy and loving.

    The word prodigal means: A person who spends, or has spent, his or her money or substance with wasteful extravagance.
    The father felt very sad to hear that his son wanted to leave his house and go live a rich and greedy life but he did not say no because he knew it was what his son wanted most and would keep him happy.
    I think the son wanted to leave his house was because he was tired of working, wasn’t happy living as a “labarour at his fathers house”, he was the sort of person who is greedy, likes giving parties and is very lazy.

  2. Jesus taught this parable so we would understand how much God wants us to be in his family.
    The Father represents Gods character and how God would respond to a situation like that and the sons represent us.
    God wants us to try to be like the older son but in the end we all sin because of Adam and Eve and God listens to our cries of help every day.
    This is the verse I found out about Forgivness: Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.Psa 103:13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
