God Does Not Act Like Them. Thank God!

So to them Jesus addressed this parable…of the Prodigal Son.  Jesus addresses whom?  The Pharisees and scribes, or, the tax collectors and sinners?

If tax collectors and sinners, then Jesus tells us that God is someone who waits for us, watches for us, and, meets us on our turf when we return.  God’s act of forgiveness does not consist in words but in a celebration.

That is enough to make any Pharisee and scribe quite disappointed that God does not act like them.
