Luke 15:28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
Let’s never be so super spiritual that we can be bitter when the Father forgives the sinner and brings him home. Let’s not be so selfish that we have to be begged to come back into the house because someone got saved that we do not want to see in the Father’s house.
What an embarrassment, the Father is outside begging the one that belongs in the house to come back into the house! The big brother is too proud and too good to allow the little brother in the house.
How often do we fall into this trap?
Tomorrow’s reading Luke 16
