THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The three parables of things lost and found emphasise the unending
forgiveness of God and God’s rejoicing for those who return. In each of
the situations there is a frantic search for that which is lost and a
huge celebration when the lost is found.
In the third parable of the Prodigal Son there is much to reflect on.
We hear that the younger brother eventually ‘came to his senses’. We
might pray today that God shows us the aspects of our lives in which we
also need ‘to come to our senses’.
As with all parables, we are left thinking and wondering, disturbed
even. A sheep and a coin we can rejoice over, but when it is a person
who has done us harm, hurt us in some way, it is a much deeper and more
painful process. The elder brother in the third parable feels hard done
by, is deeply hurt, full of anger and resentment. Luke, being the
excellent storyteller that he is, does not tell us the outcome of the
story; it is for us to finish for ourselves. The elder brother has two
options: he can walk away full of resentment or he can try to let go of
the anger he feels towards his brother. The latter is a more difficult
path but it is the only one that leads to life, no matter how painful
the journey may be. The father stands there pleading for the elder
brother to come in. ‘Forgiveness isn't about releasing someone from
accountability for his actions. It is about us letting go of our anger
