Getting What We Deserve

This week’s sermon on Matthew 20:1-16 recognizes that we live in a world where fairness and justice are defined when we get what we deserve. Work hard? You’ll be rewarded. Mess up? You’ll get what you deserve. Jesus tells a parable that seems to turn this wisdom of the world on its head.  Jesus offers a parable that subverts our view of fairness, scarcity, and even what is most economically important. It shows us that the kingdom of heaven may not give us what we deserve. And that may be the best news of all.  Check out the sermon with this link!Blessed Bulletin Cover
