It was the stone rejected by the builders
that became the keystone.
This was the Lord's doing
and it is wonderful to see?
am I rejecting you when you come to the vineyard you have blessed me with?
Am I beating you with my deafness?
With my stubborn pride?
With my selfish desires?
With my unwillingness to surrender?
Or with my lazy indifference?
Do I reject you with my deafness while I pretend to be your friend?
Am I paying you your share through the use of my talent?
Am I paying you your share through the love of your people?
