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 ways!.
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!.
