Description: After hearing the Parable of the Two Sons, Jesus’ listeners judged as obedient the son who said he would not go work in his father’s vineyard, but later did go. God wants all of us to work in the vineyard, whether we say we’re going to or not. In this video the work that has to be done—going on a blind date—is really only the beginning of a budding romantic relationship between two of the characters. In the same way, the reward for choosing to do the work in our Father’s vineyard is a deep and abiding relationship with God … the best kind of romance.
28 “What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’ 29 “‘I will not,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. 30 “Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but he did not go. 31 “Which of the two did what his father wanted?” “The first,” they answered. Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. 32 For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
