Keys to the Kingdom (video)

September 27th, 2020
Watch Now:

This weekend, we’re invited into the story to think about the parable of the two sons who are asked to go work in the vineyard. The first responds that he ‘doesn’t want to go’ and then changes his mind, while the second says, ‘he will go,’ and then he also changes his mind.

Which one did the will of the father?

Read Matthew 21:23-32 (if you have time, include the first 22 verses – they are important for the discussion).

We expect rewards for our efforts. If a sibling or colleague receives a greater reward than us with less effort, we are quick to complain: “That’s not fair!”
