“The kingdom of God…will be given to people that produce its fruits.”
We humans are like all tenants of Earth and like those in Sunday’s parable. Our basest instincts are to draw everything to ourselves, the “owner” be damned. God has given us a precious vineyard/planet/home, teeming with life and extraordinary resources, but we have fouled our nest, mistaking God’s gifts for our possessions. Our greed has put our precious planet in grave danger.
If there is hope for us, it is in Jesus’ message write large across his life and death: whatever happens, love will not leave.
