Sept 24th 2017 – Sunday 25A

(Matthew 20:1-16)
Grumbling is easy
when others are paid the same
while we worked longer.

Rejoice in the grace
that shares love abundantly
in equal measure.
        Jeff Shrowder, 2017
And another idea, resulting from worship earlier today:
It was usual
for first hired to be first paid
and go satisfied.
By being paid last
they saw generosity
they thought undeserved.
Breaking convention
can bring on grumbling, upset
and also justice.
        Jeff Shrowder, 2017
