Matthew 20:1-16

The counter cultural nature of the Kingdom of God is made clear in this parable. A person working only part of the day is paid as much as the person who works the full day. Last first, first last — No fair! Divine justice is vastly different from human justice. Thank God.

I tend to see myself deserving more and others deserving less. By your example, I pray to be a more selfless and generous person.
