A reflection on the elder son in the parable of the prodigal son

Posted: March 2, 2013 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

How many of us have been judgemental, even bitter in a similar situation? Haven’t we wondered why sometimes we do so much more work serving the Lord but it seems others get equal or more recognition?

Are we then truly serving the Lord? Can we see the bigger picture?  Do we truly love? Are we truly one body in Christ? When we cut off ties with a brother or sister who has sinned? Do we not love them in spite of and try our utmost to lead them to our heavenly Father? Rejoicing when they do? Do we not hope they will do the same for us?
