  15. The messages that Jesus is trying to say is that to be Very kind and honest but Jesus does not want us to be very slefish like The Prodigal Son. We are saying this because one of that sons from The Prodigal Son wanted to buy every single thing that he saw. Parables are important because they guide the Christians how to live their lives properly such as The Good Samaritan because they always helped even though they had different faiths,culture,religion and countries.
