Louie Giglio says the Prodigal Son parable is all about the glory of God. “The glory of the story has never been the son,” he says. “The glory of the story is the father.” The Luke 15 parable, Giglio adds, “was always about the father who would not take no for an answer.” That father “with outrageous grace received his son back from the dead, celebrated him and reconnected him into a future story.”
By teaching the parable of the prodigal son, you’re conveying this lesson, according to Giglio: “God is a God of relentless grace and the outrageous pursuit. That God is a God who is unlike any other god.”
