There was a farmer with two children. One worked hard on the farm and did the job he had while the other child didn't and wanted to make his own fortune. So the second son asked for his part of the family fortune and set off.
Can I have my fortune now father.
So the younger son set off into town thinking of how he would make his own fortune.
The son wasted his money on wild living and prostitutes. He treated himself like a king but when he ran out of money he didn't know what do.
The son had to find a job if he had any chance of feeding himself and the only job he could get was looking after pigs and this still didn't get him enough to feed himself so he started eating from the pigs food.
I should just go home
When the son returned the father was so happy he rushed over to him and hugged him. The father called for his servants and told them to kill the fat calf and prepare a feast.
Father forgive me, I wasted all your money please let me work for you.
The older son had just come in from working and heard what had happened and was annoyed and angry at his father.
We are always together, but today is a celebration because your brother as dead and he was given a life he was lost and now he is found.
I have worked for you all these years without complaint and haven't received a party and he has behaved poorly and received one.
