Story of the prodigal son provides insight about our connection with our Heavenly Father.
In the midst of love, favor, celebration, and grace...the brother is angry.
The story would have been perfect if it ended at verse 24.
Luke 15:24 This son of mine was dead, and is alive again he was lost and is found! So they began to celebrate.
Why add brother’s response? He causes a scene. Reminds his father of details of his brother’s mistakes. Maybe one reason is to remind us that grace is not overnight fix.
God blesses us to bless others...God graces us to grace others.
The grace we receive vertically we give horizontally.
