In this parable Jesus teaches us a really important lesson about fairness.

Key Points:

  • Some workers got there early and worked all day long. Matthew 20:1-2
  • Some workers got there late and worked just a few hours. Matthew 20:3-7
  • When they got paid at the end of the day, they all got a full day’s wage. Matthew 20:8-14
  • God’s kingdom isn’t always fair, and that’s a good thing!

Memory Verse:

Ephesians 2:8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.
