Sometimes we all battle with ‘vision’ problems – we struggle to see things clearly. This parable of the prodigal is one Jesus tells to highlight a reality that needs addressed within the Pharisees of the day. The elder son is one reflective of the self-righteous heart that had them stuck spiritually. The Father invites the elder son in…would he see it, would he respond? We must guard against the same posture. We all need grace.
