Good morning, happy Monday, and blessings.
The story of God's work among people is a story of hard work, followed by disappointment.
God is like a man, or a woman, who prepares carefully, planting a vineyard, putting a hedge around it, digging the wine vat, building a tower, then leasing it to stewards to care for the vines. Yet when He comes back to receive the fruit, He finds none. The fruit is withheld.
