The Parable of the Hired Workers

12 Jul

Jesus’ story makes no economic sense, and that was his intent. He was giving us a parable about grace, which cannot be calculated like a day’s wages. Grace is not about finishing last or first; it is not about counting. We receive grace as a gift from God, not as something we toil to earn…

God dispenses gifts, not wages.

Philip Yancey
