It Paints us Entitled Brats Who Are Disrespectful and Selfish

It [the parable of the prodigal son – Luke 15] paints us as entitled brats who disrespect our fathers and pursue our selfish ends at a cost to both ourselves and those who love us.  But remember, the Gospel only sounds good to a heart that knows it is bad.  For people who think they’re good, grace is frustrating.  For people who know they’re not, grace is freeing.
