The story of the Prodigal Son is one that many are familiar with. Today, we examine the younger brother, the older brother, the father and what the story teaches us about God. In the midst of this story, Jesus is challenging us to consider whether or not we are withholding forgiveness from others.

For the next couple of weeks, we are going to focus on how we live out this calling at a very practical level. The place we begin is at the dining room table. You and I must constantly make room at our table if we are to live obediently to the call God has placed on our lives as follower of Jesus Christ. It is often in our homes that others can most clearly see how the grace we talk about looks lived out.
