Today's parable reveals some other attributes of God.
He is a patient Father and a just Judge.
How many years did God show incredible patience to the chosen people?
How many times did He give them the chance to repent?
How many times did He warn them of the consequences of their actions?
But when they turned and repelled His mighty hand, He met out the punishment they earned.
We are also the tenants of God's vineyard...God's world.
We have received life, talents and abilities to produce good fruit. However, we must remember that all this is not ours, as the vineyard is not ours. We are only and exclusively the fruit. Good or bad. If we depend on the good fruits we must always be united with Jesus in order to derive the vital grace.
If you are not the fruit of your lives, you may appear to be beautiful on the outside but distasteful and harmful.
