The Prodigal Son is a parable. A story Jesus told to help people understand more about their own wrong doing and God’s amazing love and forgiveness. As children explore the story and the Christian beliefs contained in it, they also discover the relevance to their own lives. Do they need to say sorry to someone? Do they need to forgive? Can you forgive even if the other person hasn’t said sorry? Do they have friendships they need to fix?
