Non-competitive Christianity

The Kingdom of heaven is like the landowner who went out early one morning to hire workers for his vineyard. Matt. 20:1

The story goes on to explain that he hired workers at 9AM, noon, 3PM and  5PM. At the end of the day he paid everyone the same wage. This upset those who were hired early. It’s not about reward or status or who believed first or who has followed Him longest. It’s not even about the work itself. It’s about being invited to work in His vineyard where work is joy and co-workers are family.

Lord, I am so grateful You called me into Your vineyard.
