We desire to live in a fair world. We believe that life should be fair, and we expect to receive our fair wage for our work. If not, like the day laborers in Jesus parable (Matthew 20:1-16), we complain, “It’s not fair!” and demand our fair share. But what these day laborers and all who are hearing this parable do not appreciate is that God is not about fairness. God is about justice-filled grace and calls us to live generously. Because what Jesus envisioned and called us to strive toward is the world where “the last one standing in line, will be the first one to get in.” (versus. 16 paraphrase).
