And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.
-The parable of the prodigal son describes the character of two young brothers with parallel mind-set’s. The younger brother asked for his inheritance & squandered it in prodigal living. The parable explains how youth in their pleasures can clear off their inheritance in the enjoyment of life which mostly happens once the parent(s) have passed on where most inheritance is accessed. This son was clothed in the best robe, a ring & sandals when he returned to his father, all of which have unique symbols but the general feel is son-ship. The elder son on the other hand was patient & maybe unaware that he had an inheritance in the first place. He is seen asking one servant what was happening during the party & did not welcome the idea. The parable generally portrays the everlasting love & forgiveness of our Father.
Youth is stage in life when one is between childhood & adulthood. After the flood; God reveals what is in His heart, that during a person’s youth, his imaginations of the heart are evil, at the same time giving a message of restoration to the world. The youth are encouraged to be diligent in word & conduct; bearing love, faith & purity by the help of the Holy Spirit. Hardworking & diligence is also encouraged among the youth for those who are lazy will become poor but those who are focused on their vision; rich. They are encouraged to invest their time wisely & discern time & seasons to take hold of viable opportunities. God discourages anyone from dealing treacherously with his youthful wife for He hates divorce. He also seeks godly offspring’s & reveals that the unbelieving wife is sanctified by her husband, an unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife who in turn purify their children. Lastly, Christ is our sanctification & through His throne of grace; we acquire mercy & grace.
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on all the youth; Lord & the whole world. For all our sins & the sins of all the youth; forgive us Father. Lead us in Your wisdom that our choices may be justified. Instill in us Your fruit that we may always be directed in Your grace. All glory, honour & praise belong to You Father, forever. Amen
