Gospel: Mt 20: 1-16 (The Parable of the Vineyard)

We tend to think of the life of grace like that at times. To suppose ‘well there are the rules, and if you don’t play by the rules you shouldn’t get the reward.’ In a sense because – I think we look at it as though: “if I obey the law of God, I have surrendered something that probably would have made me happy and I would have enjoyed doing. We have to give up all the fun stuff to be good and be holy. And so those people who didn’t give up the fun stuff and got away with something shouldn’t get the reward. While the rest of us have suffered and shouldn’t the world all know about it.”
