Bible: Matthew 21:28-32

The Parable of the Two Sons

21:28What 1  do you think? A man had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ 21:29 The boy answered, 2 I will not.’ But later he had a change of heart 3  and went. 21:30 The father 4  went to the other son and said the same thing. This boy answered, 5 I will, sir,’ but did not go. 21:31 Which of the two did his father’s will?” They said, “The first.” 6  Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, 7  tax collectors 8  and prostitutes will go ahead of you into the kingdom of God! 21:32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him. But the tax collectors and prostitutes did believe. Although 9  you saw this, you did not later change your minds 10  and believe him.
