Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help children understand that God wants us to speak and act properly based on Matthew 21:28-32. Jesus presents the parable of the vineyard owner and his two sons to teach us that our actions speak louder than our words.
This lesson helps us to learn about keeping our word. A broken promise can be a sad and hurtful thing to accept. When we have good intentions but are too lazy to act on them, we show a lack of care for others. We must remember that our word is binding. When we say that we will do something, we ought to do it.
