Better Late Than Never
“but afterward he regretted it and went.” (Matthew 21:29)
When I was young, I hated broccoli. It was green, the texture was strange, and they looked like tiny trees – also my parents wanted me to eat it. I was not interested. Over time, I’ve grown to love broccoli. It took a while, but I came around.
There is a gift hidden within the parable of the two sons. Jesus shows us that there is room for repentance. The second son initially rejects the command of his father, but after time and thought, he realizes the error of his rebellion and goes to work.
God recognizes that some of us are a little slow on the uptake. Repentance, by definition, means you can change your mind. God is patient and merciful. If today, you regret things you’ve done or left undone – it isn’t too late to go to work.
