THE PARABLE OF THE TWO SONS
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Many Christians are familiar with this verse in James 1:22. ‘Don’t just listen. Do it.’ It summarizes well the parable that we are going to study today. In the Parable of the Two Sons, the Lord Jesus teaches that the person who refuses to do what is asked of him but who subsequently changes his mind and does the task is better than the one who promises to take care of his obligations but then fails to keep his word. Let’s read this parable. Matthew 21:28-32.
