Which of the two did the will of his father? – Matthew 21:32

In this parable, Jesus contrasts practice with professing. He describes two sons, one who was verbally resistant but obedient in action, and the other who was agreeable in words but lacking in follow through. This parable invites you to examine what is in your heart. Are you simply a bearer of a Christian label, or do you wholeheartedly commit to doing God’s will? Jesus emphasized that genuine discipleship transcends lip service, calling you to embrace His will with every beat of your heart and every step you take. Even initial hesitation can be transformed into faithful obedience. Your faith shines as you walk His paths, and your life becomes a testament to your commitment to God’s will. As you intercede for the nation today. pray for believers in positions of authority to be “doers of the word, and not hearers only” (James 1:22-25).

As the Lord leads, pray with us…

  • For U.S. officials in all levels of government to act with integrity and faithfulness to their oaths of office.
  • For the Lord’s will to be done and that He would be glorified in the United States.
