Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard

20:1 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard.
20:2 He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard.
20:3 “About the third hour he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing.
20:4 He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’
20:5 So they went. “He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing.
20:6 About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’
20:7 “‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered. “He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’
20:8 “When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’
20:9 “The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius.
20:10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius.
20:11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner.
20:12 ‘These men who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’
20:13 “But he answered one of them, ‘Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius?
20:14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you.
20:15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’
20:16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

The story of Zacchaeus

19:1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through.
19:2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.
19:3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd.
19:4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
19:5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”
19:6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.
19:7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a ‘sinner.'”
19:8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”
19:9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.
19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.


The Echo of Life

A son and his father are walking in the mountains.
Suddenly, the son falls, hurts himself and screams: AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
Curious, he yells: Who are you?”He receives the answer: Who areyou?”
Angered at the response, he screams: Coward!” He receives the answer: Coward!”
He looks to his father and asks: What’s going on?”
The father smiles and says: My son, pay attention.”

And then he screams to the mountain: I admire you!” The voice answers: I admire you!”
Again the man screams: You are a champion!” The voice answers: You are a champion!”
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: People call this Echo, but really this is Life. It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life. Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”
Your life is not a coincidence. It’s a reflection of you!

This, then, is how you should pray

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
