How do we know the will of God? What is God’s plan for your life? How often have we asked ourselves this question? In today’s Gospel, (Matt 21:28 – 32), the father asks two sons to work in the vineyard. The first son says no, but in the end goes and works in the vineyard. The second says yes, but does not go to work Which one does the will of the Father?
It was not the words of the sons that mattered, It was their actions… It is not merely our words that matter, It is our actions. We may call ourselves Catholic We may say all the responses in the liturgy But do we do the will of God? Do we love as Jesus loved? Do we care as Jesus cared? Are we doing the will of the Father? (Matt 21:28 – 32)
