Clergy Page READ MORE week of September 20, 2020
 
    For this gospel, the laborers hired at five worked for only one hour and they were paid the same daily wage as those who were hired at dawn and worked the whole day.  Now, the laborers hired at five really made out while the others were upset, frustrated and confused.  Unfair?  Possibly.  We could interpret the parable differently.  We could see that those who were hired first at dawn were feeling secured in their employment for the day.  As they observed other laborers being hired throughout the day, I suspect that their willingness and desire to work hard would slowly decrease.  Many others hired at different times of the day were helping in what were needed to be done in the vineyard.  As for the last group of laborers, I see them as very grateful and appreciative to the landowner.  They were waiting all day to be hired by someone.  I suspect that in their waiting, they must have been feeling anxious, fearful, worried, despaired and concerned for many various reasons.  In their sense of gratitude and appreciation for being hired, the last group of laborers probably worked and produced well beyond what the landowner was expecting.  They were thinking and driven in working hard so they would be hired again for the next day.

       During my working career, I had several job changes.  When I moved from one job to the next, I did not know when and if I would be hired.  I worried how our bills were going to be paid, how the children’s school tuition are to be paid, how I am going to feed the family and many other serious and critical concerns.  During the time of applying and job interviewing, I would think about how I would change my attitude and behavior so I could get the job.  Eunice and I constantly prayed for a job, especially since Eunice was a stay at home mom.  Also, I would tell myself that once I am hired, I would work hard and long so my employer would judge me as the right one for the job.  My life experience in my work career made me sensitive to the work situation of those who were the last ones to be hired for the vineyard.  As a result, I didn’t think it was unfair for them to be paid the same daily wage as those who were first hired at dawn.

      I learned that if we fully understand the entire story about someone’s life experience, and if we have walked in their shoes, we can become more compassionate and more understanding in what others are feeling and experiencing.  As a result, we can be more open to loving and caring for them.
