286: The Case of the Older Brother - August 7, 2023

In the last episode of the Max Lucado Encouraging Word Podcast, we focused on the father of the prodigal son. Today we’re looking at the older brother, the responsible one who stayed home and did what was expected, and honored his family.

And the dutiful older brother? Well, he was still invited to the party.
