Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16)

Tom Demorest, December 6, 2020
Part of the Kingdom Parables series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Three complaints of the hired workers and three responses from God:

1. Workers' complaint: Their self-centeredness and jealousy of others created an attitude of ungratefulness.
God response: He gets to generously bless whomever, whenever and however He wants to.

2. Workers' complaint: They feel they deserve or have earned their wages.
God's response: You actually don't deserve or earn anything yet I’ve been fair and paid you what you agreed to.

3. Workers' complaint: You have made the last hired equal to us who started work earlier.
God's response: He values and loves each of us equally regardless of what we deserve.
