Grace and restoration revealed by the father of the prodigal: 
"Every command is a meaningful expression of love to his son.  The best robe would be the father's own, and that would signify the son's complete restoration to the family.  The ring was a symbol of business, used to imprint wax and seal a deal.  The ring said, 'You are part of our daily operations.  You may transact business on our behalf.' The shoes squelched any possibility of the son returning as a servant.  Only the family wore shoes.  The fatted calf was simply an expression of deep joy - the best course for the happiest event." ~ David Jeremiah, Captured By Grace
