After he had spent everything on gambling, he began to be in need.‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death!'
He said to his Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your lowest employees.’
His father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best suit and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and shoes on his feet. Buy the best food. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’
