21 "The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'
22 "But the father said to his servants, 'Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.

3 Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth.
5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.
The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them.
"Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
Whoever fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
