“And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.”  Luke 15:31

Those words were meant by the father to comfort and reassure the elder son, to invite the elder son to the celebration, but likely had the opposite effect.  I can see the elder son, after hearing them, stomping off in a snit and continuing to refuse to join the party for his returned brother.  Yes (throat clearing) I could see somebody doing that.
