Equally Blessed

“So the last will be first, and the first last.” (Matthew 20: 1-16)

Here is a picture of “Extravagant Generosity.”  The land owner was a wealthy person with a generous heart. He used his resources to offer opportunity and aid to others.

His lavish blessing to those who had worked only one hour became a source of inspiration to some and contempt to others.  Some saw it as injustice;  others as noble and kind.

Some worked for a specific amount; others simply trusted the land owner to be fair. No doubt that land owner had developed such a reputation for fairness and generosity.  Those eager to work despite the lateness of the hour went into the vineyard with only one hour left in the day. They worked earnestly as if it was a new beginning.  They were rewarded for their generosity in going.

Both those who worked from sunrise to sunset and those who worked less were equally blessed by the land owner.

This is a parable of the Kingdom of God and His Christ.   When we enter does not determine our blessing, because in God’s Kingdom we are all equally blessed!

So, beloved it’s not too late for you to enter God’s Kingdom.  Why not accept Jesus Christ today and become His disciple?  Ask Jesus to receive you, surrender to His Word and accept His lifestyle.  Your life will never be the same again!
