God’s Ways and Thoughts Are Always B
There are times when God’s ways don’t make sense—at least not by the standards of human reason. In today’s Gospel reading, the workers in the vineyard who worked from dawn to dusk couldn’t understand why they didn’t get paid more than those who worked only for a few hours. Yet the owner (God) insisted that His generosity was His to dispense as He saw fit. Through the prophet Isaiah, God reminds us that “as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Today we pray that God would make His ways known to us, and that we would be empowered to submit to His ways even when we don’t fully understand them.
