The Workers in the Vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16) - KR 58

Kingdom Roots with Scot McKnight

How is it that generosity can create frustration? In Jesus’ parable of the workers in the Vineyard he challenges his listeners to embrace the generosity and faithfulness of God. Jesus takes on the toxic attitude of envy that feeds the darkest parts of our hearts and casts a shadow over our eyes preventing us from the opportunity to see God at work. If followers of Jesus don’t rid themselves of the envy that can plague their heart all they will be left with is frustration from the extravagant generosity of God toward others.
