New in the Bible App for Kids: “Coming Home,” the Timeless Prodigal Son Story

Available now in the Bible App for Kids, in “Coming Home,” religious leaders ask Jesus why He spends time with people who do bad things. Based on Luke 15:1–3 and 11–32, “Coming Home” shows Jesus answering them by telling a story about a man with two grown-up sons: the timeless parable of the prodigal son.

Sometimes parents save up money to leave behind for their children after they die. But the younger son asks his father if he can go ahead and have his share of the money now, even though his father is still alive. This makes the father very sad, but he gives the money to his younger son anyway. The son moves far away and starts spending his father’s money on things he thinks are fun — but that are actually very bad for him.

Because the son keeps making bad choices, eventually he runs out of money, and he has to get a job taking care of pigs. Then the weather turns bad, and farmers can’t grow enough crops to feed everyone. The son gets so hungry, he wishes he could eat the pigs’ food. All of a sudden, he remembers: “Wait a minute — my dad is rich! If I go back home, maybe he will give me a job. Then I’ll have enough food to eat.”

ComingHome_Scene5_FINAL

When the younger son gets home, his father runs out to meet him. Even though he is embarrassed that he behaved so badly, his father is just so happy that he came home, he hugs him and tells him everything will be okay. This makes the older brother angry; he thinks it’s not fair that his younger brother wasted so much of their father’s money. But the father tells him, “Why are you angry? I have always shared everything I have with you. Your brother was lost, but now he’s found! Let’s have a party! He’s home safe and sound!”

ComingHome_Scene6_FINAL

If you already have the Bible App for Kids, all you need to do to get “Coming Home” is open the app and tap the new story icon. But even if you don’t have the app yet, getting it is easy — and it’s free! Just click one of the buttons below.

Bible Plans on Work and Leadership help you refocus.

Work. Inspired.

prepareyourheart-leadershipwork

It can be so easy to get caught up in the everyday busyness of work that sometimes we lose sight of what matters most.

Does God have a purpose for my life?
How can I find it?
Can I honor Him right where I am?
How can I serve Him…
yet still do what I need to to pay my bills?

The Bible offers us timeless wisdom from people who struggled with these same questions, inspired by God’s Spirit. In just a few minutes each day, YouVersion Bible Plans let you explore God’s Word, then reflect on how you can live out its truths in your daily life.

Find your spark again! Try one (or more) of these Plans and reignite your work and leadership with meaning, purpose, and vision. And when you discover one that truly inspires you, share it with your friends!
