"Do you remember the story of the prodigal son?" asked my grandfather and put down the book he was reading. "The son of a very rich, generous, and loving father had left home and for many years he squandered his part of the father's fortune on worthless things and distractions. The young man didn't know at the time that what he was doing didn't have any value and he was going deeper into misery. The son was ashamed to return home, because he believed he wasted his father's fortune. When he eventually returned home, his father took him in his loving arms and welcomed him back."
"I've heard the parable many times, grandpa" I said. "Our Father in Heaven forgives us for the wrong we've done, that's the meaning of the story."
"The true meaning of the parable is that the son himself was the father's treasure. The father wanted nothing else but his son, and nothing had any real value to the father but his son. The son couldn't squander the father's fortune because the son himself was the father's fortune. You, my child, are the treasure of the Father in Heaven, and when you decide to return home, to return to love, to return to God, you will be always welcomed because your Father in Heaven wants nothing else but you."
