Today's NT reading was about the prodigal son. When reading this passage I tend to focus more on him then the older brother, however both of them were wayward. The prodigal son had more of an immoral lifestyle and the older son had a self righteous attitude. Both are sinful. The father loved both his sons unconditionally and was not harsh with them. With the prodigal son the father ran out to welcome him, and with the older son the father came out and pleaded with him. This is a wonderful picture of how graciously God pursues us! I am so thankful for that!
