“Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with what is my own? Or is your eye envious because I am generous?” (Matthew 20:15)
The laborers in the vineyard are grumbling over the inequity of those who have worked only one hour having the received the same wage as those who worked the full day. It begs the question, “Is God just and fair?” The answer is no! In his desire to redeem and have a relationship, he has chosen instead to deal with us according to his mercy and grace. I don’t know about you, but I’m grateful that He doesn’t give to me what I deserve.
