Amos 8:11 (a) This is symbolical of the lack of the Word of GOD as the Bread of Life. When the Scriptures are ruled out, then the people perish, the vision is gone, hope fades, and there is a general declension.

Luke 15:14 (b) The gifts of GOD may be used up, but the love of GOD never fails. This boy left his father's home, which is a type of walking with and loving our Lord, to seek his pleasures in the far-off country, which represents the world. He found that all that the world offered him soon failed. Nothing that the world gives can satisfy the craving of the human heart. The world with its pleasures and its pursuits fails to satisfy the craving of the heart. The person must return to GOD, he must come again under the protection of the sacrifice of the Lamb of GOD, and thus enjoy fellowship with GOD.
