The Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost - The Stone Which the Builders Rejected

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Hear another parable: There was a certain man, a householder, who planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and dug a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it to husbandmen, and went into a far country. Yet another parable He brings to them, showing that though they were deemed worthy to receive an immeasurable degree of care for their condition, they did not get better. The man, a householder is the Lord Who in His love for man calls Himself a man. The vineyard is the Jewish people, planted by God in the land of promise. For He says, Bring them in and plant them in Thy holy mountain. [Ex. 15:17] The hedge is the law which prevented them from mixing with the Gentiles; or, it is the holy angels who guarded Israel. The wine-press is the altar; the tower, the temple. The husbandmen are the teachers of the people, the Pharisees and the scribes. The householder, God, went into a far country when He no longer spoke to them in a pillar of cloud. Or, the departure of God into a far country is His long-suffering; for when He is long-suffering and not in hot pursuit of wrongdoers, demanding an account, He appears to be asleep or absent on a far journey.

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 112: Adam and Eve (9/18/16)

Sunday, September 18, 2016

What do Adam and Eve have to do with stewardship? Well, they have everything to do with not being good stewards! They were not the stewards God wanted them to be.

Surely they started out doing what God asked them to do and likely were very happy with taking care of all that God gave them. And they were blessed by being in continual communion with Him.

Wow! Can you imagine, walking in the presence of God every day and talking to Him? Adam and Eve had it all. They were made in God’s image, lived in Eden (Paradise), which was lush and green and without thorns and thistles to contend with, so tilling the soil was effortless as well as enjoyable.
