Passion Parables – “The Two Sons”

Posted by Ooltewah UMC on Sunday, March 10, 2019

When you were a kid, did you do everything your parent or parents told you to do? C’mon, be truthful!

Ok, so some of us may not have been the poster child for being the perfect kid. And there were times where our disobedience ranged from microscopic to awkwardly large and obvious.

Those of you who are raising kids are probably experiencing some of this from a recipient’s standpoint, right? It’s not fun when your child tells you he or she will do something and not carry it out, or just flat-out tells you they’re not doing it.

How does this parallel with our relationship with God? Think about it. He calls us to do His work, to be His hands and feet in this world. How many times have we said yes, and then didn’t follow through? How many times have we said no? We haven’t been perfect children to our Father, but, thank God, like a true Father, He still loves us! And He still calls us to work. What will be your answer?
