Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people: “What is your opinion? A man had two sons. He came to the first and said, ‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’ The son said in reply, ‘I will not,’ but afterwards he changed his mind and went. The man came to the other son and gave the same order. He said in reply, ‘Yes, sir,’ but did not go. Which of the two did his father’s will?” They answered, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you, tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the Kingdom of God before you. When John came to you in the way of righteousness, you did not believe him; but tax collectors and prostitutes did. Yet even when you saw that, you did not later change your minds and believe him.”
Are you ready to change your mind and believe in Jesus and what He preaches? His truth transcends time and our definition of truth. Open your heart as you did as a child and trust in His word. Believe in the truth.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the joy, love and truth that you have shown me. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
