Luke 15:32. In the Parable of the Prodigal Son, Jesus illustrates to us how the spiritual dead can be brought back to life. In this parable the prodigal son leaves his father and uses a portion of his inheritance for “riotous living”. At this point his father considered his son dead, because his son was separated from him both physically and spiritually.
THE JOY OF RETURNING TO OUR FATHER
1st Chronicles 29:9. A Christian revival causes us to have a perfect and joyful heart in the Lord. When we yield to our Lord, he makes our heart perfect, and one of the characteristics of a perfect heart is joy.
Ecclesiastes 5:12. For those that love money above all else, they will have no peace in life. God desires to bless us financially, but only if we work hard and put spiritual things above money. Ecclesiastes 5:12 says, “The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep”.
Ecclesiastes 10:19. The Bible provides us a lot of financial advise on money. Money holds a special place in human endeavors because it has the ability to meet all of our physical needs. Ecclesiastes 10:19 says, “A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry:: but money answereth all things.” Food can satisfy our hunger. Drink can quench our thirst.
