We cannot go into God's house (not talking about a church building; think eternal) and live by our own rules. If we could we would be lord of that house wouldn't we? By "faith" we submit that His ways are, indeed, higher than our own. We trust Him then submit, daily, to His will.
Jesus told this in a story so that those hearing could relate.the story is just as well re-told today. (Matthew 22:1-14).
