Comparison time

today we have two stories, both are about a father and son. The first story starts off in Holland, with the great Dr. Boekman, and his son. One day wile the son was helping out with his dad, he accidently gave the wrong thing to a paten. That turned out to be very poisonous if the patent took it. But luckily, Dr. Boekman found the mistake. The paten still died of his sickness, and the boy thought that he was going to be charged with murder. So he ran away, and went to the first person he thought look like a honest man, then asked him if he could come with him. Down by the water there was a boat that he was getting in, before he did this he gave the man a watch then told him to give this to a person in about a week. Back at home, the guy who had the watch gave it to his wife to take care of it till then. Later that night, a man from the dikes told him the water was rising, and that they needed his help. Unfortunately he fell off the dike and hit his head and now he can not think no more.

Ten years later, Hans goes to Dr. Boekman to see if he can come and help his father. Well the man does and he was able to do surgery, and release the pressure on his fathers head. And now he is sane, and awake. Of course, they ask him about the watch, then he tells the story of the man who told him to give it some one a week later. Dr. Boekman came in one day wile the were talking about the watch, and they showed him the initials on the watch. Upon realizing it was his sons watch, and hearing the story, he now knew that his son didn’t just leave him but fled in fear. They did find him, and of course they where over joyed.

Now the second story is a parable, told from Jesus, in Luke: 15:11-32. This story starts off with a son going to his father asking for his inheritance now. Once given, the son ran off into the world just so he could party and have the worlds fun. But once the money had run dry, all his fake friends left him. What made it worse was a famine in the land. So he started to work by feeding the hogs on some bodies farm. Wile feeding the hogs he would eat the husks that the pigs where eating. then it came to him,” when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,”. He goes back to his fathers house humbles him self and say’s” 19And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. 22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.”

The difference between these two stories are minor. The start of these two stores start off with the child making a foolish mistake and left the home. One story was because he didn’t want to be called a murder, the other left home because he was being foolish. But when, they came home, both of them where not greeted with anger, but with passion and kindness. The one boy that went to live it out yes he is home but he has nothing. The other was an owner of a factory, and was still being wise with his time. The two things that are similar in this case is that both fathers greeted there sons with joy, and both sons made a foolish mistake. Thank you for reading and if there is any thing wrong with this essay please feel free to tell me down below.
