"Christ-like" every day! I love this church!

"Not without reason this has been called the greatest story in the world…..It should never have
been called the parable of the prodigal son, for the son is not the hero. It should be called the
parable of the loving father for it tells us rather about a father's love than a son's sin.
It tells us much about the forgiveness of God. The father must have been waiting and watching
for the son to come home….when he did he forgave him with no recriminations.
This is not the end of the story. There enters the elder brother who is actually sorry that his
brother had come home. He stands for the self righteous Pharisees (religious leaders) who
would rather see a sinner destroyed than saved. His attitude shows that his years of obedience
to his father had been years of grim duty and not loving service. He was the kind of self
righteous character who would cheerfully have kicked a man farther into the gutter when he
was already down."
"A Loving Father Who Had Two Sons!"
