Leadership Devo of the week: Matthew 20:1-16

“They grumbled saying, ‘These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us…’”  “It’s not fair.” I remember my mother hating this parable. Every time she heard it she said, “It’s not fair.” What’s not fair? Equal wages? Equal treatment? Equal love? In what ways do I think God should treat me special? Is all my labor earning me a better grace, a better love, a better reward? Why do I serve and minister as I do?  Forgive me for a grumbling heart that seeks special recognition over my brothers and sisters saved by Your grace.
