When you were young how many times were you told to clean your room and you answered “No! I’m not going to.” Or did you answer “OK. I can go do that”? How often did you follow through on your answer?
If you said you wouldn’t clean your room, but did it anyway, what changed your mind? What if you had said you would, and then didn’t?
There are probably many times when we are asked to do something and we say “Yes” or “No” and then do the opposite of what we said.
And there are as many reason why we changed our minds and did what we did. In this Sunday’s Gospel reading that is the situation we have. One son said “No,” but did it anyway. The other son said “Yes,” but didn’t do it.
We are not told why the two sons changed their minds. We are only left with the question “Which of the two did the will of his father?”
