In the parable of the vineyard owner who pays equal wages to all those who labour in his farm, those who work the whole day and those who labour for just the last hour... this is quite an amusing parable (Matthew 20:1-16a). I fear most of us who consider ourselves the 'chosen one's' or the privileged will find ourselves too in this line and worse still, be found grumbling that God has been unjust to us. And what would be our line of argument? The same as those who argued that God was being 'partial' (generous) to those who did 'less than us'. Isn't being chosen by God Himself, in itself not a privilege? Is not being in His vineyard a real blessing?
May peace and contentment reign in our lives.
