sons the "wicked" son is just the most hurt so he requires the most of time and patience. He is not really wicked - he just cannot find enough trust to be the wise one. He lost his trust during years of being fed with hatred instead of love and that's all.

I would say that there is another son - sixth one - who is fully observant but unable to come and ask. This one is a son of a father who is a bad teacher, the false authority, the pharaoh of teaching. Reply

son A family can also have four personalities. And every Jew has his place in service of Torah and more time is spend on those who need more help, but the reward of each is still different. The Torah decides that also.But everyone is equally given the opportunity to serve and no one's service is insignificant.Without different types of Jews the Torah would not be complete. Reply
