In our society, fairness and equity are in strong demand: when we behave well and work hard, we expect rewards. This mindset, though, leaves little room for grace. Taking us to the parable of the prodigal son, Alistair Begg examines the character of the older brother, who complained of unfairness at his father’s mercy. Through the father’s loving example, we learn of God’s grace in giving us not what we deserve, but what we as His children could never achieve by ourselves.
25“Now his older son was in the field, and as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
