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.”
Which are you? Do you hear the word of God and believe? Or do you hear, and see the miracles He does and still not believe? You do not have to be blind to not see or deaf to not hear. Open your eyes and your ears to the truth of the Lord.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, my faith in you does not waiver. I believed before I saw the miracles, but after seeing them, Lord, I give you my heart, mind and soul. In Jesus’ holy name, I give you honor, Amen.
The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
