While the Prodigal Son partied in a distant land, his older brother toiled in the backyard. But don’t be fooled—turns out you don’t have to leave home to rebel.
In this message, Dr. Stanley takes a closer look at the second half of the parable of the lost son, examining the self-righteous attitude of his older brother. Though he has the appearance of a devoted son, in reality the older brother’s heart is full of entitlement, bitterness, and jealousy. Don’t let self-righteousness poison your relationship with God or His children—find the cure that releases you to join the celebration.
