The stay-at-home son gives us another of human ignorance. We often condemn others for not believing as we do, and we somehow expect God to condemn them too. We become self-righteous and conceited and full of vanity and anger. Yet, God's responde to this son's complaint again his brother was; "...Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine".
I turn back to God today that I may live in the consciousness of His Love and know the peace and healing and restoration It gives. Forgiving and forgetting that which was done in ignorance, I seek to live now in the eternal Goodness of God.
