Not on your problems

Luke 15:11 And He [Jesus] said,
A certain man had two sons;

Luke 15:12 and the younger of them said to his father,' Father, [CMD] give me the share of the estate that falls to me.' And he divided his wealth between them.

Luke 15:13 "And not many days later, the younger son gathered

Luke 15:16 "And he was longing to fill his stomach with the pods [food suitable for pigs] that the swine were eating, and no one was giving anything [food suitable for humans] to him.

Luke 15:20 And he got up and came to his father. But while he was still along way off, his father saw him, and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him, and kissed him.

Luke 15:21 "And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'

Luke 15:22 "But the father [cut him off]

Luke 15:22 "But [the father [cut him off] said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand [signature ring] and sandals on his feet;
Luke 15:23 and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat ...

Luke 15:23 and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and be merry [celebrate];
Luke 15:24 for this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again [he simply returned home]; he was lost, and has been found. And they began to be merry [celebrate].
