Mar 09, Jason Sixsmith rated it it was amazing Like many people, I assumed the word prodigal meant "wayward or wasteful. Keller's book starts out by clarifying the definition of prodigal—1 recklessly extravagant, and 2 having spent everything—which gives understanding for the book's title, The Prodigal God. Keller goes on to lay a solid foundation to the story by drawing attention to the fact that the older brother does not enter into the feast at the end of the parable. So what we have is two lost sons; the moralistic older brother who follows all the rules, trying to merit his father's good graces, as well as the wayward and reckless younger brother. These are two personalities everybody can identify with; and apart from walking in God's grace, these two brothers represent the way in which man alienates himself from God. Our society is divided into two cultures, as Keller points out. The culture of the "older brother" is the conventional moral conformist, commonly known for "stability" as well as striving to please authority figures. The "younger brother" culture lives by their own rules, walking a path of self-discovery. Every person gravitates to one of these two categories, and some combine the two. Both cultures proclaim, "If those people would follow our example, the world would be a better place. Within every person's heart is a hunger for home. The Prodigal God seeks to show us there is no satisfaction in our own efforts and pursuits to fill that longing with the things of this world since they are only here to serve as signs and reminders pointing to the feast—Christ's saving work. If you want a deeper understanding of how we live next to the feast without entering or wander far from it, and if you want a better idea of what this feast looks like, then I recommend reading this book.

Remember, they are His children too! It is hard to understand all the reasons why some people take another path.

Sincerely rejoice with them in their successes; be their friends and look for the good in them. We should never give up on them but preserve our relationships. Never reject or misjudge them.

Just love them! The parable of the prodigal son teaches us that when children come to themselves, they often desire to come home. If that happens with your dear ones, fill your hearts with compassion, run to them, fall on their neck, and kiss them, like the father of the prodigal son did. He knows and understands our deep sorrows and pains, and He will bless your efforts and dedication to your dear ones if not in this life, in the next life. Remember, brothers and sisters, always that hope is an important part of the gospel plan.

Throughout many years of service in the Church, I have seen faithful members who have consistently applied these principles in their lives.

At that point in time, Mary recognized that her most critical decisions relating to her family would be spiritual.

Would praying, scripture study, fasting, and church and temple attendance continue to be important to her? Mary had always been faithful, and at that critical juncture, she decided to cling to what she already knew to be true. They frequently discussed the gospel and shared their experiences and testimonies with one another.

Three of them faithfully served full-time missions, and the youngest is now serving in South America. As she bore her witness of Him to us, we each began to turn to Him with our own questions.

I am so grateful she brought the gospel to life. I testify that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. He is the Redeemer, and He lives.
