The Parable of the Generous Landowner, Day 4

Today’s reading is drawn from Matthew 20:1-16.

This parable is an extended reflection on Isa 5:1–7, which speaks of God planting and caring for the vineyard of Israel. The story questions any entitlement to God’s blessing. The generosity of God is available at any hour and is open to all. From a symbolic point of view, those who feel entitled to work in the vineyard are the ones who refuse to dwell in the transformative power of God’s mercy.

What has God done that was generous in your life?
