Our scripture text is the familiar story of the prodigal son. There are actually two lost sons in this story. One took his portion and went away; the other was lost having never left home. Each of us have at one time been one of the two lost sons in this story. What ever the reason that we leave the fatherâs house, none of us ever conceive that the story would end up as it did. We never intend to go as far as we do. At times during his move away from the fatherâs house, the son no doubt had memories of where he had come from. He surly had conflicts with his conscious, but those thoughts were quickly drowned out with another night on the town. When he reached bottom, out of money, out of food and out of options, he was visited by his only remaining friends: Guilt and Shame. The devil is not specifically mentioned in this story, but he was certainly there. The devil must have thought that he had this young man. He must have thought he had won. But there are some things that the devil did not count on. The devil did not count on the memory of the fatherâs house. The devil did not count on the power to choose a better path. The devil did not count on the courage to get up and turn his life around. He didnât count on a moment of sanity in a life of insanity. The devil did not count on the fact that no matter how far from the fatherâs house we may be, that it is still visible. How ever far we may be, we are not too far to come home.
