God grants blessings in abundance. God does so with a purpose in mind: that we might bless others with those blessings. Parables from both Isaiah and Jesus tell of a landowner (God) who supplies all that is needed to bring a fruitful, abundant harvest. What the landowner receives is a bitter harvest of bloodshed, violence, and injustice. What does God expect from us in return for the gifts we have received? What will God do if we return a bitter harvest or no harvest at all? That is the question Jesus asked, and still does?
