The landowner engages workers for his vineyard at the beginning of the workday. They agree to a wage for the work. Then, at several different times in the day, he engages more workers. When the end of the day comes, the workers line up to receive their wages. All of the workers receive the same wage regardless of the number of hours worked. Is this fair?
Is it fair that someone who acknowledges God and lives as they are called to do from an early age receives the same “reward” in the end as someone who accepts Christ at the end of their life? God’s grace is more than we can believe, and sometimes more than we can accept. However, it is for all of us.
We welcomed our newest members today, Marsha and Rick Herder.
