Rejection is something we all encounter on our journey through life and Jesus was no exception. The son of God came to earth, showed His love in every possible way and was rejected. In this gospel, Matthew 21:33-43, we are exposed to the truth that God has done everything possible for us as a people by sending His Son to live among us. In return we might have turned our back and offered him nothing but indifference. In this parable we can perhaps see ourselves as tenants cultivating a small portion of God's vineyard and when harvest time arrives we are expected to produce the fruits of right living, by displaying a way of caring, sharing and showing forth the charity of the gospel in our daily lives.
