“Peter said, ‘Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or to everyone else as well’” (Luke 12:41)?

Peter’s question captures well our very human tendency to seek out the least common denominator; desiring to find the path of least resistance. It’s the equivalent of a student asking, “Is this going to be on the test.” Though we are saved by grace, and not by works, being a product of God’s grace should create within in us a wanting, reaching, and doing of more; that our lives might reflect a spirit of undying gratitude becoming of one having experienced God’s magnanimous mercies. With such a standard before us, there is no arriving, only continued laboring until His arrival.
