Let’s all share our gifts and talents for the greater good.

“Therefore, I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit.”
This is an eye-opening comment by Jesus.
It was part of a parable about tenants of a vineyard who mistreated the owner.
It points us to the importance of what we are doing now…in this time and place.
We are expected to produce the fruit of the kingdom of God.
It’s not about somehow securing a place in a future kingdom of heaven.
It’s about helping others to experience the kingdom of God now.
When we are acting out of selfishness or meanness, we will not experience the joy of the kingdom.
When we are acting out of love, compassion and justice, we will experience it.
It’s as simple as that.
In this time and place, with all that is happening in the world, with the Coronavirus spread, and with many in politics catering to the lowest common denominator, we need more than ever to be a compassionate presence to life as it unfolds.
If each of us would do this we just may hear the words of Jesus, “You are not far from the kingdom of God” (Mark 12:34).
