Scripture Union Daily Guide 24 May 2022 MESSAGE
The focus of the passage is more on the father who demonstrated extreme love for both sons. The father granted the request of the young man even though it was not timely. The father’s compassion was displayed to the fullest at his return. But note the step the younger son had to first take to enjoy the full compassion of his father (vs.17‐20a & 21).
We have a Father who is eagerly waiting for us and is filled with compassion to bestow on us the best robe, a ring on the finger and sandals on the feet. O that we may truly repent of our sin and return from every form of rebellious way of life. The celebration will be for us. We see the same attitude of the religious leaders of yesterday’s passage in the older son who refused to share in the joy of his brother’s homecoming.
Instead, he focused on his brother’s sins and was completely blind to his own sin of extreme ingratitude (vs.28‐30). This older son, or any of us who behaves in a similar way, is equally lost. Anyone who depends on their good works cannot enjoy the Father’s love and grace.
Sing in appreciation of God’s love: Amazing grace! How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me; I once was lost but now I’m found; Was blind but now I see!
