The parable of the prodigal son has a natural focus on the son who leaves, lives recklessly, and returns. But many of us live out our faith like the older brother—living at home, with the Father, yet refusing to enter into joy. The younger brother chased the desires of his stomach and found himself lost in the world. The older brother, blinded by resentment, entitlement, and fear, was lost in his own home.
Scripture Luke 15:25–32
