When Words Aren't Enough (Matthew 21:23-32)
People will know they’re welcome in God’s house—not just because we tell them (as important as that is)—but because we show them . . . we keep throwing open the doors and inviting people to come in. We keep working on behalf of those who’ve been turned away by the very people who are supposed to be tending the vineyard—but who’ve proven themselves inadequate to the task by their continued failure to actually pull the weeds and dress the vines. Sometimes words aren’t enough, in large part, because those words have to bear at least a passing resemblance to the lives we live.
