TWO SONS

Today's Reading: Matthew 21

Key Verse: Matthew 21:29-30

He answered and said, ‘I will not,' but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,' but he did not go.


Chapter 21 begins with the fulfillment of Prophecy (Zechariah 9:9). The people had all studied the Hebrew Scriptures, and after witnessing this Palm Sunday event (the triumphal entry into Jerusalem on a donkey), they were open to Jesus' teaching, the Temple cleansing, cursing the fig tree, His authority, and the parable of the two sons. Jesus' message is very clear. He judges the promise breaker much more seriously than He does the one who was initially rebellious but ultimately obedient. Two sons are in this story. Like the two sons in this story, we may have made and broken promises. We still have a choice. We can repent of the sin of rebellion and dishonesty and do a 180-degree turn towards God's plan and purpose for our lives.


PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord, which kind of son (or daughter) am I? Father, if I have failed to keep my word to You in the past, please bring it to mind, that I may confess, repent, and be made right before You. Thank You. Amen!

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
