As we come closer to Great Lent, the Church offers us the Parable of the Prodigal Son as inspiration for us to embrace a genuine repentance in our heart. The story of two brothers, both selfish but only one experienced the love the father by repenting. When we remain in our sin refusing to admit that we need to change our life and return to God, we will remain lost and starving with the pigs. Even when we remain loyal to the father, in Church every Sunday, if our loyalty is not with love, we will not be able to experience the love of God. The blessing comes the moment we admit that our life needs changing and we choose the return to God. At that moment God welcomes us home and restores us whole to His Kingdom.
