The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone. Psalm 118:22
Jesus quotes a proverb from Psalm 118:22 in his speaking the parable of the vineyard owner, and the rejection of the son. It gives insight to one facet of God, how His ways are not the ways of man. He chooses in ways that seem insignificant to humanity. The Pharisees could not see God unfolding His plan in Jesus, who came humble, poor and insignificant. Despite all of their study and waiting for the Messiah, their preconceived notions cloud their vision to where they are missing the opportunity.
Today, let us turn to God and be mindful that indeed, His ways are not our ways. Let us abandon ourselves into His divine wisdom, and ask that the Holy Spirit will help us to trust what we don’t understand with our intellect, and turn to the Scriptures, the Sacraments and God’s grace to embrace the divine reality hidden in our hearts.
May God bless you.
