TABLE TALK: Use the Table Talk questions below to start a discussion around the Table at dinner.
Why do sheep need a shepherd? (To protect them, guide them, and rescue them when they get lost.)
Do you think the Good Samaritan was like the shepherd? How? (Yes. He helped someone who was hurt and alone.)
What would have happened to the lost son if he did not go back home? (He may have lost a lot of weight or even died of hunger. He would have been lonely.)
If you ran away from God, would you be afraid to go back to him?
Why should we never be afraid to run to God when we need help?
