Albert Finch Ministry - Daily Devotional - February 8, 2020

 Luke 15:28 - "But he was angry and refused to go in. His father came out and entreated him,"

In the parable of the prodigal son, if the elder son had considered his brother, he would have rejoiced at his return even as his father did. Rather he was totally self-centered and became angry.

 

How can we esteem others better than ourselves when in truth we really think we are better than others? The Pharisees did the right things for all the wrong reasons. Inside they were corrupt. So our evaluation of others needs to change.

 

We need to esteem others on a different basis than the world does (by embracing the love of Christ in us). To esteem someone better than ourselves simply means to value him more than we value ourselves. To some, that may seem impossible but it can happen when we die to self and live for God.
