Check out the response of the older son…
Luke 15:30-31 (TPT)
But look at this son of yours! He comes back after wasting your wealth on prostitutes and reckless living, and here you are throwing a great feast to celebrate—for him!’ “The father said, ‘My son, you are always with me by my side. Everything I have is yours to enjoy.
He never even asked!
The older son was so consumed with pleasing the father and ticking all the boxes, that he had made himself like an orphan.
All the while everything he wanted was right in front of him through his relationship with his father.
Ask. Believe. Receive.
For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him.
John 14:13 (TPT)
