Bible Text: 
Matthew 21:23-32

Matthew 21:23-32 is the Parable Jesus tells his disciples about the Two Sons. A father asks his two sons to work in the vineyard. The older son declines but later changes his mind and works in the vineyard; the other son agrees, but doesn't follow through. Which son obeyed his father; the first son!
The parables of Jesus are highly-relatable stories tied to our own experiences which open a window to God’s thoughts and God’s ways. This parable is worth our full attention.

  1. Like the father sending his sons to work, God commands all people to carry out his will. 
  2. Like the son who ultimately disobeyed, some promise but do not obey God’s will and are rejected by God
  3. Like the son who ultimately obeyed, some rebel but later obey and are accepted by God

Following Jesus means following his commands to us.
