“So when the first came, they thought that they would receive
more, but each of them also got the usual wage.”
Matthew 20:1-16a
Focus on the Gospel
September 24, Twenty-fifth Sunday In Ordinary Time
      A TV commercial depicts a mom who makes a peanut butter sandwich for two little boys with
the last two pieces of bread.  She tells one boy that he can cut the sandwich in half, and he gets
excited.  After he cuts the sandwich, she says that the other boy will get to choose which half he
wants.  Our attitude about what is just is often influenced by the impact such justice will have on us.  
It is probably natural to side with the workers who started first and complained that the workers
who started last received the same wages.  But justice is not about how much we have in
comparison to others, but about what we do with what we have, regardless of what others do or
fail to do with what they have.  God makes us stewards and caretakers of all that we are, all that
we have, and all that we ever will be.  He also makes us stewards of justice for things over which we
have control.  Happily, we are not responsible for what God has given to others, except to give them
a good example of how to act justly by imitating Jesus.
