The parable of the wicked tenants is a powerful allegory for salvation history. In this story we see how easy it can be to try and deceive God. It never works. God knows our heart better than we do ourselves.

There is in none of us so much good that there is not a little evil, nor in any of us so much evil that there is some good. Every day we have to choose for good.

O holy Spirit, grant me the courage to choose well today. May I be granted the gift of a generous heart and a mind willing to be conformed to Your will.
