Good Tenants

Fr.-JeromeDear friends: Why did Jesus’ story about wicked tenants cause offense to the scribes and Pharisees? It contained both a prophetic message and a warning.
This parable speaks to us today as well. It richly conveys some important truths about God and the way He deals with His people. First, it tells us of God’s generosity and trust. The vineyard is well equipped with everything the tenants need. The owner went away and left the vineyard in the hands of the tenants. God likewise trusts us enough to give us freedom to run life as we choose. Secondly this parable also tells us of God’s patience and justice. Not once, but many times He forgives the tenants their debts. But, while the tenants take advantage of the owner’s patience, His judgment and justice prevail in the end. As the parable invites us to be faithful and responsible to our daily duties as followers of Jesus.
