After you gave it your best, splained it so well, invested gobs and saw your offspring bail out to run after a life of worthlessness.

Parent, trust the far country to do it's work... just like the prodigal's father did. He didn't chase after, plead with, bribe, beg with tears, go-by-feelings, amply fund, enhance the pleasure-seeking-lifestyle to show that he's kind, foolishly enable, or comfort the stiff-necked arrogantly "entitled" uber-party-addict in his sin.. but the father simply trusted the far country to do it's work#whentheystridefromtheMastersside 

"Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard. Every prudent man acts with knowledge.." Prov. 13:15-16

''The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, but a good man will be satisfied from above." Prov. 14:14

"And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off (no sinner can restore or save them self..), his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him" (Lk. 15:20 emph mine). Ya don't see another pic in the Bible where God is running, but here He does, and it's towards what/who?'s towards a repentant humble sinner who is still greatly loved. For God so loved the world that He gave. And Jesus took every stripe and particle of splintery wood on his bloody back that each of us deserved, and then He rose from the dead after that ugly Cross horror..cuz of love. It's amazing how the Father loves sinners like me, so that we can get right with Him.
