God Put The Prodigal on Husks For a Purpose

One family in desperate straits came to a congregation for help. The people began to pull together some resources to help them out. Someone brought a word of prophecy that said, “Don’t give hamburger to those I have put on husks.” God put the prodigal on husks so he would come to himself and return to his father’s house. If someone had given him regular meals, he might have stayed in the pigsty forever. (Mike Rexroat - Sermon Central).
