And he [Jesus] said, A certain man had two sons…
And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. – Luke 15:20 (KJB)
For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. – Luke 15:24 (KJB)
It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. – Luke 15:32 (KJB)
What father is not watching for his children to return?
Read the whole story in your King James Bible: Luke 15:11-32.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. – 3 John 1:4 (KJB)
