Matthew 21: 28-32

St. Matthew is the only one to record the parable of the two sons.  In this story, Jesus reminds us that god always takes the long view.  God’s plan always leaves room for conversion and growth.  I can tend to be hard on myself and others.  Rather than being a “last chance” disciple, God invites me and others to change and grow every day.

O God, may I never take your patience with me for granted.  I rely on your generosity.  May I also be generous with others and always leave room for conversion and change.
