Why “Prodigal Thinker”?

A “Prodigal” is someone who spends resources freely and recklessly.

I gained my inspiration for “Prodigal Thinker” from the parable found in the bible in Luke 15. One of the sons asks his father for his inheritance before his father’s death. (Almost to say that he didn’t care if his father was dead or not.) The father granted the request and the son left and spent his inheritance frivolously. The son finds himself living among pigs and thinks to himself that perhaps he could return to his father’s house as a servant but figures he would never be restored to his previous status. When the son returns, his father runs out to greet him, welcomes him home, wraps a robe around him (restoring him as his son) and throws a huge celebration. I am just like that prodigal son. I ran away from God’s arms and wasted huge portions of my life living outside of God’s plan for my life. Thankfully, I came to my “rock bottom”. A pig sty of an existence, but God welcomed be back into His Kingdom, back into His arms. Now, my hope is that I can share, give freely, of the love and grace that I have received.
