The Prodigal Son's Older Brother
Summary: One thing that's really interesting about the story of the Prodigal Son is the way Jesus chose to end it-with the older brother! What can his story teach us about our role within the church? Verse: But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him. So he answered and said to his father, "Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends. But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him." -Luke 15:28-30 To receive an e-mail with a link to the "A Better Way to Live" devotional every day, and to view past devotionals, visit www.itiswritten.com/betterway
