People who are in the world, focus on material things. They are always looking for the greener grass on the other side of the street. The father gave the son a great gift, but it wasn't the portion of goods. The true gift was freedom to choose. In the same way, God has given us the same choice. Do we choose the world, or do we choose to follow Him.
"And the younger of them said to his father, 'Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.' So he divided to them his livelihood.
God gave us a great gift. We can either receive it, or reject it. Remember that it is only by being free to choose, that we can truly love Him.
