Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Matthew 20:15

This parable preeminently sets forth the spirit of humility and the sense of unworthiness that should characterize the servant of God. The servant should always remember that even after he has done all, he is unprofitable, for he has only then done his rightful duty.
Moreover, “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” (Gen. 18:25). Who is the servant to question His justice?

It is very obvious that the grumbling servants of this parable were more concerned about their pay than about their faithfulness to the landowner who had called them into service, for no other reason than the fact that he was full of grace and kindness.

Who am I? Why should I be called—let alone chosen—to serve God, when thousands are not? This must be our spirit.

Lord, I am humbled that You would call me to serve You.  Hear now my confessions and my praise for your forgiveness of such.
