Luke 15:25-30

25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’

28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’

One response to “Luke 15:25-30

  1. It is hard to grasp the mind of God sometimes. The logic of the brother resonates with me, but the mind of the Father is to celebrate the wayward who came home. My punitive and small minded logic thinks the one brother should be punished and the other should be rewarded, but God celebrates the restoration of the disobedient.
