Ezekiel 18: 25-28

God speaks to the prophet Ezekiel.  Though the people of Israel accuse God of being unjust to them, it is they who commit injustice.  Those who have sinned but repent and change their ways will have life.

Philippians 2: 1-11

St Paul calls his readers to be united.  They must not compete but must think of others before themselves.  Paul encourages them to try to be like Christ in their own minds.

Matthew 21: 28-32

Jesus tells the story of a man with two sons, whom he asks to work in his vineyard.  One says yes and does not go; the other says no but then does go.  Jesus says that tax collectors and sinners are making their way to heaven ahead of religious people who heard but did not believe.
