Re: Question about Matthew 20:1-16?
There was plenty enough work for all of them to matter and get paid for whatever it was they did, regardless of when they started.
It also means that chronology doesn't matter all that much. It's not about how soon anyone got there, it's how well they did when they did get there, the fact that they stuck around long enough to finish and receive payment, and that they fulfilled whatever agreement they and the vineyard owner made together.
In the end, they still all got paid, and exactly that which was agreed upon beforehand.
Also: Don't compare yourself to others. Cause God don't work that way.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
