James Martin shared the following insights into the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) in a tweet on March 18, 2017:
Gospel: Henri Nouwen’s insight: We act like the Prodigal Son. We feel like the Older Brother. But we’re called to act like the Loving Father. — James Martin. Twitter Post. March 18, 2017, 9:28 PM.
I know from experience that a lot of us feel like the older brother, let us remember that we have been and often still are like the prodigal son. Let us also remember that the goal of the Christian life is to act like the loving father.
