Sunday Reflection

Today’s gospel reminds us of something we often forget: words can be meaningless. Promises are empty when not followed by action. The first son is arrogant but his action shows his goodness. The second son sounds co-operative but fails to keep his promise.
Do we make promises to others that quickly go out the window? Our good intentions are no good to the person we intended to help, but didn’t. Have we got the courage to say: “I’m sorry, I won’t be able to do that for you,” instead of promising what we already know is not going to happen?
Jesus asks us to think whether our words and actions are in agreement. It is easy to talk, to pronounce and to make statements. It is more difficult to give time, effort and attention. Jesus values a few small acts more than many fine words.
