If your mum or dad asks you to help with a job, what do you say? Yes or No?
More importantly, what do you do?
In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells us about a father who asked his older son to help in his vineyard. The son at first said “no”, he didn’t want to. But then he changed his mind and went to work in the vineyard.
Later in the day, the father asked his second son to help in the vineyard. He said “yes, of course”… But then he went off and did something else instead.
Which son do you think did what his father asked?
The one who said he would help or the one who actually went and helped in the vineyard?
Jesus’ message for us today is that it doesn’t matter what you SAY, it matters what you DO.
What can you do to help others like God the Father asks us to?
