In this week’s Gospel, we hear another parable about a vineyard. Today we hear about tenant farmers who brought forth beautiful grapes, but they thought it was their own doing and forgot about their responsibility to the vineyard owner. We are challenged to think of how we act toward others and if we see God, as the vineyard owner, as the reason for our abundant harvest.
