Family problems can sometimes be exceedingly difficult to resolve. This one appeared impossible and we are never told if it ever was resolved. Knowing what followed later on and knowing who were actually involved, it is unlikely that a resolution was found. Life can be like that, and it is painful when such circumstances and situations suddenly arise. The young man, having comes to his senses, returns home. It is the young man who had run away from home with his family inheritance and he has wasted and squandered the lot. He blew everything which his father had given him, but father was desperately seeking his return to the family home. Father is so tender and understanding. "You have nothing to lose by coming in. We had to celebrate."
