“You go to my vineyard and I will give you a fair wage.”

Matthew 20:1-16

Sometimes we may get caught up with our own thoughts, expectations, plans and when things do not turn out as we had hoped for, we get upset. We tend to look at things that we do not have, we complain and become dissatisfied.

When we pray and focus on Jesus, it helps us to be more positive, accepting and be happy with what we have. We can look beyond our own needs and see what we can do for other people who are less fortunate – people who are homeless, bedridden, facing with famine, abuse and depression. Jesus knows what is best for us so we need to surrender and let him lead us, use our talents and capacity to do God’s will. Do we listen to the Word of God? Do we appreciate all the blessings that we have?
