The Art of Neighboring, Part 1:Knowing Where to Start

Passage: Isaiah 55:6-9 Philippians 1:21-30 Matthew 20:1-16

Keeping up with the Joneses. It’s not difficult to find examples of people complaining about what they don’t have because they’re envious about what others do. Jesus reveals this in a very realistic parable about a generous vineyard owner. Are we begrudging the master’s generosity? The solution to this kind of grumbling is to see God’s hand in everything we receive, good and not so good. Isaiah is right: His ways are higher than our ways.”
