Heed God's Warning Now

        In today's Gospel reading from Matthew 21, Jesus tells the Parable of the Tenants to the chief priests and the elders of the people.  At the end he says to them, "The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit."  This is a warning to all who do not take the Lord seriously.  It's so easy to go to bed and expect to wake up the next morning for another day, not at all thinking about God or your eternal destination; but there's always the probability that you may not see tomorrow.  It's true that God's mercy is unlimited, but our lifetime is not.  Heed the warning while we still can!
