Matthew 20:1-16 | I’m always amused when so many of us become offended with this parable. For some reason we all think that we are among those who have been working all day. We think we should be paid more than the latecomers. We declare, “It’s not fair!”
But, when it comes to doing the work of God’s kingdom, I have to risk being honest and vulnerable to admit I’m a latecomer. And I’m pretty sure most of you are, too. We are not among the first. We are among the last.
God’s economy is different. Don’t be so offended or proud that you fail to enjoy it.
Reading Seth Godin’s blog today I got a real sense of the joy of God’s economy.
