The Parable of the Prodigal Son was told by Jesus in Luke 15:11-32 and came right after He had told the Parable of the Lost Sheep and the Parable of the Lost Coin and His audience were the scribes and Pharisees who were complaining to Jesus that He associated with tax collectors and sinners (Luke 15:1-2) and so this parable was not necessary intended for the disciples alone but it appears that this parable was directed to the religious, self-righteous leaders of the Jews.  It is important to know not only what the parable means but to whom it was spoken to.

This story shares our relationship with God. As long as we know how to seek Him, He will be there for us.
