The father said to his older son, “We had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found.” - Luke 15:32 (NRSV)
As the older of two brothers, I have always felt that the elder brother in the story of the prodigal son has been treated unfairly. To me, his objections are justified. I am sure that this feeling was due in part to the similarities between his story and my relationship...
Whether I am reckless or self-righteous, God loves me.
