In the spirit of St. Augustine who urged his followers to search for God together, consider next Sunday’s gospel in which Jesus tells the parables of the two sons to the chief priests and elders. One son initially refuses to do what his father asks but later changes his mind and obeys. The second son initially agrees but does not follow through. Jesus concludes the parable by saying that tax collectors and prostitutes came to believe, but the religious leaders did not, nor did they later change their minds upon seeing the repentance of others. Isn’t it true that obedience to God’s desire in our lives can be so much more difficult for those of us who have learned to see ourselves as leaders in some way?  How do we receive the humility to hear and obey God’s word to us?
