One of the most attractive ways to picture our relationship with God is something on the order of "Do good now, get better later". It's attractive because it means that all of God's blessings reflect your faithful adherence to God's commands. Would you be surprised to learn that this is entirely backwards, that you cannot earn God's favor? Bet your life you would! We poke around in everybody's least favorite parable, The Worthless Slave, from Luke to clarify our understanding.
