(August 2, 2015)
The Lord’s rhetorical question (“What could have been done more to my vineyard that I have not done in it?”) ought to bring each of us a great deal of hope. The God of all has put forth His very best efforts to allow us as His children to succeed. Should we not take joy in this fact?
If we sat and contemplated what it would take to bring us to be the kind of people that could go back and live with Him, we certainly could imagine miracles and revelations and so forth. But we know that an omniscient Father, far wiser than us, has given us everything He could to help us succeed. That means whatever we might imagine that would help us, God has given us so much more than that. We have been placed in the best possible position to succeed.
