It is funny how the passing of time reveals to us the mysteries concealed in certain words. As a little boy I was introduced to the prodigal son and told not to be like him. I was instructed not to walk like him, talk like him and certainly not to live my life the way he did. For the “non-initiated”, the story of the prodigal son is a parable told by Jesus Christ and documented in the Bible (Luke 15:11).

For many years, I wanted to be like the other son. He didn’t take his father’s possession and waste it off on prostitutes, gamblers and “riotous living”. For many years, I couldn’t understand why when the prodigal son returned from lavishing his father’s hard earned possession, his father celebrated his return and the other son had to watch.
