31“And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.
In the parable of the prodigal son, the good son saw the father as a hard and stingy man. He believed that he had to work to get something good from his father. He didn’t realize that he already had an inheritance! He could have killed the fatted calf any time for a celebration. The father in this parable is like our Heavenly Father, He is indescribably good. We do not have to work to earn the blessings of provision, peace, healing, protection and whatever else we might have need of. God has given us an inheritance in Christ. Do not fail to enjoy it by doubting God’s goodness or by believing that you must work for it. Since the Father, for our sakes, did not spare His own Son, won’t he also give us everything else?
