Luke 15:11-32 tells the Parable of the Lost Son, in which a young man squanders his inheritance before returning home and asking for forgiveness. The young man's father rejoices and plans a feast to celebrate his return, but the elder brother reacts in anger.
'The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. But he answered his father, "Look! All these years I've been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!"' (Luke 15:28-30).
