THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Many of Jesus’s parables are difficult. We are invited to place
ourselves in the story. Which character do we identify with?. To which
group would we belong?. Sometimes we find ourselves sympathising with
the character who turns out to be in the wrong . God’s ways are not our
The parable of the labourers in the vineyard is one of those tricky
ones. We are drawn into the story, and we feel some sympathy for the
crowd who end up grumbling at the landowner. These early birds who were
hired at daybreak have done the most work. They have toiled all day in
the heat , doing far more labour than those who were hired only at the
last minute—yet they all receive the same pay. It’s hardly fair, is it?.
But the landowner makes his point: “Why be envious because I am
generous?”. Of course, Jesus anticipates the discomfort of his audience.
He uses parables to gently pull the rug from
under their feet, to challenge their assumptions, and offer them a new
way of thinking that is focused not on themselves, but on the wider
community. Place yourself in the story. If you identify with the
grumblers, ask yourself why. Why should we be concerned about what
others are getting?. Who are we to judge what others
deserve?. Surely we, too, should want God’s love and blessings to be
extended to everyone!.
