Lost at HomeStuart Jones There are three characters in the story Jesus told about the prodigal son. Parents can certainly relate to the father’s unconditional love. Most of us can relate to the younger son, who made a mess of his life and wanted to come home. But the older son is sometimes forgotten and that may have been his problem. He did things right, which usually doesn’t attract much attention. It really bothered him when his brother got attention that seemed undeserved. Our sense of fairness can get in the way of our desire to reach lost people. But that’s our mission.
