This is the best rice commercial ever - not that I have paid much attention to other rice commercials.
As I watch the commercial, I hear echos of this story in Luke 15. And I think it sheds some light on the father in Luke’s story. I think it also helps us understand the culture of honor.

Yes, the son returned home. 
Yes, the son had done wrong.
But the father’s heart changed, too.
It doesn’t matter how far you’ve gone. 
It doesn’t matter what pig pen you’re eating from. 
It doesn’t matter what bed you find yourself sleeping in. 
The loving-kindness of your Dad is always ready to partner with you and start over.
You might not be able to go home to your real dad.
But you can always come Home.
