Excerpt from the Book of Bible, NIV
“Parable of the Lost Son”

There was a man who had two sons.

The younger one said to his father,

So he divided his property between them.
Not long after that,
the younger son got together all he had,
set off for a distant country
and there squandered his wealth in wild living.

After he had spent everything,
There was a severe famine in that whole country,
And he began to be in need.
So he went and hired himself out
to a citizen of that country,
who sent him to his fields to feed pigs.

He longed to fill his stomach with the pods
That the pigs were eating,
But no one gave him anything.

When he came to his senses,
He said, how many of my father’s hired men
have food to spare,
and here I am starving to death!
I will set out and go back to my father
And say to him:

“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 hired men.”

So he got up and went to his father…

What do you think the son felt all this time?... 
And what will be the father's reaction?

Continuation can be seen at Luke 15:20-32
