Second Week of Lent

Religious leaders held themselves in high regard. As Jesus and the Disciples made their way to Jerusalem, the Lord said that He would rise, but only after suffering the anguish and pain of crucifixion. In a parable, Jesus described the fate of murderous tenant farmers who refused to turn over a landowner’s share of the produce. Another story depicted a prodigal son who wasted what the father had given him but undeservedly received a favored son’s welcome home. While living in hope of eternal life, do we regard holiness as the highest standard of living here on Earth?
