Meaning and doing what we say

Reading: Matthew 21:28-32

There is no one I know of who is more guilty of not meaning and doing what’s said than myself. Sometimes the intention is really there to carry out, but because of the urgent things in life it slides down in my priority list; other times it just becomes automatic to say “yes” with some persistent people just to be relieved from the pressure of their relentless nagging.

But my Father is not a nagger. He is a loving God who tries to draw me closer to Him everyday through His kindness. When He asks me to work His vineyard it should not be burdensome because He has already provided me everything that I need to accomplish His task–the breath of life in me, His material provisions, and His Son Jesus who models how I should do things and whose Spirit is within me to enable me. He makes me whole–what can I not do?
