A Word for Respectable Sinners

Passage: Luke 15:25-30
Service Type:

In the older brother, Jesus is showing the Pharisees what they are like. Maybe they were waiting for the prodigal to get his comeuppance but Jesus shows that no matter how far we have sunk, there is a way back to God. The older brother is no less guilty, having received his double portion of the inheritance. We can have an appearance of respectability but God knows the state of our hearts.
