Matthew 20, “The owner of an estate went out early one morning to hire workers for his harvest field. He agreed to pay them $20 a day and sent them out to work. “A couple of hours later he was passing a hiring hall and saw some men standing around waiting for jobs, so he sent them also into his fields, saying he would pay them whatever was right at the end of the day. At noon and again around three o’clock in the afternoon he did the same thing. “At five o’clock that evening he was in town again and saw some more men standing around and asked them, ‘Why haven’t you been working today?’ “‘Because no one hired us,’ they replied. “‘Then go on out and join the others in my fields,’ he told them. “That evening he told the paymaster to call the men in and pay them, beginning with the last men first. When the men hired at five o’clock were paid, each received $20. So when the men hired earlier came to get theirs, they assumed they would receive much more. But they, too, were paid $20. “They protested, ‘Those fellows worked only one hour, and yet you’ve paid them just as much as those of us who worked all day in the scorching heat.’ “‘Friend,’ he answered one of them, ‘I did you no wrong! Didn’t you agree to work all day for $20? Take it and go. It is my desire to pay all the same; is it against the law to give away my money if I want to? Should you be angry because I am kind?’ And so it is that the last shall be first, and the first, last.” FRIENDS, EVERYONE IS CALLED TO SHARE THE GOSPEL, WHETHER YOU ARE A NEW CONVERT OR SEASONED CHRISTIAN. GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE WORDS. John 15:16, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
