The Surprise of Grace
When Peter asks Jesus what the disciples will receive for following Him, Jesus responds with a parable about laborers in a vineyard. When the laborers begin to grumble about their wages, the master kindly rebukes them demonstrating his authority and addressing their entitled posture that focuses on fairness rather than his benevolence.
