This parable is like Jesus saying this world will tell you that you are
only valuable when you can consume and when you have money. Woe unto you if
you lose your job, or if life does you wrong, or if your retirement
accounts lose their value. But wait. That is not the message of the Reign
of God. In the Kingdom you are of infinite value because you are created by
love for love and you will be judged not on how much you consume but on how
you treat the weakest among you.
