Twenty Fifth Sunday in Ordinary TimeMatthew 20:1-16a
Today’s parable may be difficult for some to digest. Jesus tells the story of the landowner who hires workers throughout the day from morning till evening. He then begins with those hired last and pays them the same wage as those who completed a whole day of work. This passage is to signify that some who have followed Christ their whole lives will go to Heaven. And some who came to know Christ in their last hours will also come to Heaven.
Who is fit for Heaven is not ours to judge, only the Lord’s.
May we use our time to serve the Lord and focus on our own personal holiness to insure our entrace to Eternal Life with God.
