    Scripture Reflections

    The First Reading states, ‘God’s ways are not our ways, God’s thoughts are not our thoughts.’ Just how vast the difference between God’s ways and our ways, between God’s thoughts and our thoughts, is illustrated in the Gospel. God’s generosity utterly transcends human generosity.

    The parable of the workers in the vineyard was aimed at the Pharisees. These legalistically-minded men were critical of Jesus because he befriended sinners and outcasts. In the parable Jesus faces up to his critics, and shows them what God is like: God is generous and full of compassion for the poor and the outcast. In that respect the parable is similar to that of the prodigal son.
