Jesus told a story in which he said that God was like a man who paid everyone the same no matter how long or hard they had worked. Some of the workers thought it wasn’t fair, but the man had other concerns he considered more important. So how is God like such a man and what does that mean for us? Listen and find out.
This parable is a tough one because the rich guy, who in many parables represents God, praises a dishonest farm manager. (Read the story here.) What are we to do with this? I will start with what we know about God and the proper use of wealth and then show how the parable illustrates the wisdom of generosity. Oh, and that bit about praising a dishonest man? Wait until you hear what I do with that!
