Mother Maxine Barnett, Curate at The Church of St. Jude (Episcopal) in Wantagh, NY explains that we all want fairness in life and become angered if we feel that we have been treated unfairly. When the prodigal son returned home, his brother, who was dutiful and remained at home to help out, was furious when his father threw a party in celebration of his son’s return. The parable is teaching us that God’s grace is abundant and there is enough for all of us, including those who have stayed close as well as those who have strayed and returned back to Him.
