Luke 15 pt 4

The gospel – A God who receives sinners. 

Providential mercy the older brother was in the field.  There are many ppl who are like this older brother. One mistake and they will never forget. Always bearing a grudge. An ungrateful heart a spirit of resentment. A swift word can reveal simmering thoughts. Industrious and immpecable. This older brother is a Pharisee. 

So busy doing things no time to be anything. Sense of own importance. Arrogance. They interpret a snub to them. Slavish attitude. No love in his work. 

Jesus is holding up a mirror in these parables. What does it say about you? Do you keep your distance when new ppl come to church?
