A way to live at home:
Parents need to try to forgive fully to begin to overcome any rebellion of their offspring.
Based on Luke 15:1-3,11b-32
[A way to live at home suggested by a reading for many churches for The Fourth Sunday of Lent for 3/6/16. Asking for his inheritance before his father dies is grossly inappropriate. Finally, coming to his senses, the wayward son is ready to live as a hired hand. Instead, dropping his dignity, the father runs to welcome him. The father puts the jealous older brother in his place.
Forgive rebellious offspring as fully as you can. Your image will grow, not shrink.]
