2 Peter 1:2-7. Psalm 90(91): 1-2, 14-16. Mark 12:1-12.
In you, my God, I place my trust—Psalm 90(91): 1-2, 14-16.
‘He has lavished on us all the things we need for life.’
In this Gospel, Jesus is talking with members of the church. God is the owner of the vineyard and the priests are the tenants who reject God’s messengers and refuse to show obedience to his word.
God patiently sends multiple messengers to us in the form of prophets who each suffer abuse or death.
Finally, he sends his only Son who also meets his death.
Lord, help me to discern your will and listen to the messengers you send to teach me, whoever they may be. Save me from the distractions and misdirection of my world.
Help me to be obedient to your will.
