You and Your Prodigal Child

How can a Christian lead others when his home is torn by rebellion?
Single Session Bible Study


A pastor writes how he and his wife struggled with the behavior of their prodigal teenage daughter. Being in the very visible role of pastor made some of their decisions more difficult, yet now the couple sees how God was at work through this troublesome time. A prodigal child is the fear of every parent, yet it's very common in the church. This lesson offers insights on how to deal with issues that confront the parents of prodigals.
