We can’t build an economic system on the parables of Jesus. We are the benefactors of a theology of grace that treats the latecomers like the ones who have worked all day. Grace does turn our world upside down because it does not make sense to those who have labored all day. It is grace not earned income credit. It is grace not earned or deserved it is given. It is a gift. Why do we have jealous thoughts about the gift? What do we learn from our feelings about this parable?
