Luke 15:17 KJV 1900
And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
Luke 15:18 KJV 1900
I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
Luke 15:19 KJV 1900
And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.


The Prodigal was always a son, nothing he could do could make him less than a son.
When he came to himself he said “I remember what home was like”. I want to go home. What kind of a home would that be?
This Message has the answers for parenting today.
Here not long ago, they had some of these doctors that said, “Let the baby lay and cry.” You nurse it at a certain time: you don’t pick it up. If it cries, let it cry it out. They did that twenty-five years ago. That was a great belief amongst the doctors.
Come to find out, it hatched out a bunch of neurotics. Let nature have its way. God knows what’s best. That baby needs love. If you take love away from it, you’ll make a brute out of it. That baby’s got to have love. You’ve got to take care of it. 54-0718A - The Great Coming Revival And The Outpouring Of The Holy Spirit
40 years later James Dobson said the same thing.
Harvard University Study:
91 percent of college men who said they had not enjoyed a close relationship with their mothers developed coronary artery disease, hypertension, duodenal ulcers, or alcoholism by the midlife years. Only 45 percent of the men who recalled maternal warmth and closeness had similar illnesses. The same was true of men and relationships with their fathers.
18 Was talking to a young lady just a few moment ago, that was suffering from a nervous condition, and the nervous condition. She said how she had tried to overcome it. Now, I’m not much of a Christian Science or a Unitarian. I don’t believe there’s anything like mind over matter. I believe God is a healer.
The lady was born in that nervous condition. Her mother and father died when she was a child, baby, and raised up, just tossed about everywhere, and never had the proper love and care that a baby has.
19 You know, mother, I want to tell you something. I know I got a little boy back there, and he’s really rankly spoiled, but I would rather have him that way. I believe it’ll make a better man out of him, if God lets him live, than to let him scream and cry, and upset his little self.
20 Listen, a few years ago, some normal modern witch doctors said, that, “Let that baby cry. Don’t pick it up. In all these things like that, don’t let grandma touch it.” And you know what they hatched out? You see what it is? A juvenile delinquency, a bunch of neurotics.
21 God made a baby to be loved. That’s why He made a mother to love a baby. 56-0108 - God Hath A Provided Way
Our home that we go back to is a home filled with love.
