Jesus Told a Story
Jesus then began to speak to them in parables: “A man planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place. Mark 12:1
Jesus told a story. Those who heard the story thought it was about farmers thinking the owner charged too much rent; it was really about remember who owned the land. It was really, really about Jesus, whom the world would reject because we struggle with the thought of God being in charge of all things (the owner). The priests of Jesus’ day were offended the story and saw the solution as killing Jesus. What is your solution? Do you embrace the reality that God owns all things, that He is LORD of your life? If so, how will that shape what you do today and why?
