Afterward, he repented.

Afterward, he repented.
” But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward, he repented and went. And he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them, twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you”.
Matthew 21:28-31(KJV)
How often did you promise to do something?
Then you did not do as you have promised?
Or, in another scenario, you promised you would not.
Afterward, you did.
How many times did you promise God you would not sin again, but you still do.
God does not condemn you.
Rather through the Holy Spirit, HE enables you.
Often it is easy to promise.
However, it is not easy to keep the promise.
Don’t look down on others.
Do not make promises to God that you will not keep. Instead, ask Him to help you do what you should.
When you miss it.
Genuinely repent.
He will give you another chance.
Application to the Christian life:
Do not make idle promises to God.
Be honest.
Ask His help.
Trust Him.
