WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS STORY
“There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Give me my share.’ So he divided his property between them.” “Soon the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and squandered his wealth in wild living. After he spent everything, there was a severe famine and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. He longed to fill his stomach with what the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.” “When he came to his senses he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving!’ I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired men.’ So he got up and went to his father.” “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” Ask for the rest of the story.
