The Shocking Tale of the First and the Last | Matthew 20.1-16
The stories Jesus told were shocking, insulting, provocative, challenging, disrupting, unsettling, and frightening. They were anything but sweet, comforting, simple, and trite. In these short stories we experience the creative genius of Jesus as he crafts stories and examples intended to provoke a reaction... and let me warn you, "indifference", is not an option!
The Parable of the Vineyard Workers gives a response to the disciple Peter's question, 'We've given up everything to follow you, what will we get?' We learn in Jesus' response that if you’re going to stay encouraged in the field of the Kingdom, you need to remember that it all functions on the land owners generosity and not on what we deserve.
