Father forgive his son

The spiritual benefits of forgiveness – The parable of the prodigal son.

 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 15:35

In the parable, the prodigal son returned home after plundering his inheritance.  His loving father welcomed him home andSpiritual benefits of forgiveness held a grand party for him.  When the other son found out about the party he was angry with his father and he did not go in.

The father saw his son’s displeasure and came out to speak to him. He said, be happy for your brother since he has acknowledged his wrongdoing and has come back home to us.

The son’s reasoning was, he had been faithful all the while to the father but he never got such treatment but his brother who plunders his inheritance gets a party.  It didn’t seem fair to him.

The spiritual benefits of forgiveness

Forgiveness helps us to let go of the offenses others have done to us.

It helps us to have better relationships.

It brings peace to our spiritual being.

and It gives you good health.


The Father in the parable is a good representation of our heavenly Father who is always willing to forgive us when we wrong and welcome us back to him. When persons reconcile with God, we must be intentional in being happy for them by showing them love and appreciation instead of condemnation and Judgement.  Seeing someone enter the kingdom of God should be the #1 priority for all Christians.
