Parable of the Two Sons

We've learned about Jesus' teaching stories called the Parable of the Sower,
the Parable of the Weeds
the Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl,
the Parable of the Wandering Sheep,
the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant,
the Parable of the Wedding Banquet, and the Parable of the Bags of Gold.

Another Parable Jesus told is called the Parable of the Two Sons.

A father had two sons.
He asked them both to go work in the vineyard.

One son said no he would not go, but then later changed his mind and did go to work.
The other son said yes he would go, but never did go to work.

What Jesus meant by this is that it is very important to do God's work.
It is more important whether or not you do the work, than whether or not you say you will do it.
