It is only in Mathew’s Gospel that we hear the parable of the two sons. This story allows Jesus to show forth the pre-eminence of conversion in the spiritual life. The son who is faithful is the one, who in the end, endures.

Am I able to leave myself room to change and grow? Once I say yes to God, am I willing to accept the commitment to remain faithful?

Dear Jesus, help me to say yes to God’s plan today. May Your Spirit embue me with confidence and fidelity.
