A Message from Fr. George
Of all the parables of Jesus, today’s is one of the most unusual and perhaps even one of the most uncomfortable. From our human point of view, there appears to be an injustice in paying workers who had worked only one hour the same amount as workers who worked an entire day. We have an expectation through our laws that demands equal pay for equal work… hence those who worked only one hour were paid a vastly higher hourly wage than those who worked all day!
But we are forgetting: God’s ways are not our ways. We are forgetting about generosity in the face of justice. Remember the criminal on the cross next to Jesus? By his own admission, he deserved the punishment that had been handed down to him. He realized that his fate was a matter of justice for what he had done. But it was through his recognition of Jesus as Lord in the last minutes of his life, that his reward in heaven became the same as the greatest saints that ever lived.
God offers the reward of heaven. He offers it to us as well as to the person we despise or condemn. God’s mercy and forgiveness is beyond what is just. The first workers agreed on the usual daily wage… and that is what they received. But those who came late were not to be left out. They too were given what they needed to live that day – a full day’s wage. God offers us eternal life. Are we willing to accept it not only for ourselves but for others as well?
