This story is also called the prodigal son.
Prodigal means to spend a lot of money on things you don't need and being very wasteful with what you have. You will see that, that is exactly what this son does. This is the parable that Jesus told: There once was a father that had two sons.
One day the younger son said to his father, "Father, could you give me my inheritance? So the father thought about it and decided his sons could have the money now, and he split it evenly between them. Very soon after the younger son received the money, he decided that since he had so much money he would move to a different country and have some fun with it.
When he left, he left for good. He took every last thing he had and didn't plan on returning. He wanted to be grown up and spend all his money how he wanted with no one to tell him what to do.
So he just left. He left a big farm with many hired men with everything he needed, he left his family, and more importantly he left his father who trusted him enough to give him the money.
This probably made his father very sad and I'm sure he missed him very much. While the son was gone he spent all the money he had right away. He didn't think to save any of it.
He ate out every meal every day, he bought fancy cars, he threw wild parties and spent money on many other things that God wouldn't be happy with.
It was even worse for people who had no money because food became even more expensive, so it was very hard for poor people to get any food. The son was in trouble.
He had no money, no place to live, he had nothing to eat, so he had to get a job. The only job he could find was feeding pigs. He was so hungry he tried to eat the food that the pigs were eating but his boss caught him and told him if he ever saw him doing that again he would lose his job.
That night as the son was walking home his stomach wouldn't stop growling, he was so hungry. He saw some people walking towards him and he asked them if they could give him any money for food, but no one would give him anything.
Everyone was so poor it was hard to share with anyone. The son went to bed hungry and when he woke up he realized something. When he lived with his father even the hired men had more food than they needed, and now he was starving to death.
At that moment he made a plan. He would go back to his father's house and say to him, 'I have sinned against God and against you.
I don't deserve to be called your son, so hire me and I will work for you.Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
