Read Matthew 20.1-16
“When they received it, they grumbled at the landowner, saying, ‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us” (Matthew 20:11-12)
DO YOU WANT WHAT YOU DESERVE?
My son Wes had learned a crucial lesson in life. His Gameboy was taken away by his teacher and he wasn’t even playing with it in class like the other boys. When we asked him what he learned from the whole circumstance, he calmly replied, “Life isn’t fair.” Wow! Fifth grade is pretty early to be making that observation. Sometimes you’ll hear people demand justice or complain about not being treated fairly. One of the things we need to come to grips with is that grace is never fair or just. In fact, it’s counterintuitive for us — unless, of course, we personally need the mercy. It‘s God’s prerogative to extend His grace when and how He wishes. Can you imagine what our life and future would be like if we got what we deserved or if God was “fair”? That’s what makes grace so amazing!
