Matthew 21: 28–32 for LFM
Summary: Scheduling is tricky. Whether we’re on the inviting or the attending side of things, and whether we have responded “yes” or “no,” circumstances may change whether we “show up.” Jesus takes this common experience and helps us notice the ways we do this with God as well. Surprisingly, the people we least expect are the ones who tend to show up for God, while the highly “religious” often don’t. What about us?
