“That’s Different” : A homily on Matthew 20
The parable of the laborers in the vineyard sparks different reactions as to why Jesus would invite us to live our lives that way. If everyone is paid the same, what's the point of working? By sparking different reactions, this parable invites us into deeper territory whereby we ask a basic human question: do I matter? Am I special? In order to understand that we are special, we have to understand who God is and how God challenges the way we live our lives.
