Today we will be looking at the older son in the prodigal story. In Luke 15:25-32 we have the picture of someone who from the outside seems to have it all together. In fact, most people would say this older son is doing really great with God. But as we will see he has a problem. That problem is religion, self-sufficient, the I’m just fine. He was a picture of these scribes and Pharisees that Jesus is speaking to. This older brother worked, stayed close to home, seemed to do the right things but had no love at all for people. When God fills you with the Holy Spirit you are filled with God who loves the world, John 3:16. Check yourself this morning. do I have a love for people?
