“But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go work today in the vineyard.’ And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he regretted it and went. The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, ‘I will, sir’; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first.”
As I read through these verses in Matthew, I cannot help but wonder which son I am more like. Do I refuse the work the Lord gives me, only to eventually be overrun by regret that motivates action, or do I simply say, 'yes, Lord,' but never budge? These are the verses and thoughts I ponder today as I go about my activities.
