In the NT reading today the Parable of the Two Sons spoke to me. The first son says, I won't, but then later goes. The second son says, I will, but then doesn't go.
Jesus is comparing the first son to the tax collectors and prostitutes, who are living in sin, but when John told them to repent, they did. The second son is being compared to the Pharisees, who think that they are right, but when John tells them that they need to repent, they don't.
Which son am I more like? Which son are you more like? When God shows me the sin in my life do I listen and repent, or do I think that my sin is not that bad and make excuses for it?
