Today we traveled to the Orange Conference in Duluth, Georgia.
Heard an incredible message from Reggie Joiner
He dissected the prodigal son story.
And talked about the two different approaches to the prodigal.
Loving fathers are preoccupied with whoever is missing.
Older brothers are preoccupied with themselves
Loving fathers operate from a context of forgiveness.
Older brothers operate from a context of shame.
Loving fathers throw parties.
Older brothers throw fits.
Loving fathers confront older brother thinking
Older brothers criticize loving father thinking
Loving fathers keep the lights on for as long as it takes.
Older brothers close the door and turn off the lights.
