Be grateful for God’s gifts

Today’s gospel is a well known one, the laborers all getting the same wage despite the fact that some worked 9 hours and others only worked 1 hour. Putting aside any possible economic lessons for this Gospel I suggest that Jesus may be teaching us to be grateful for the gifts we are given and not become envious or jealous of the gifts he gives others. Ultimately we may be just like the laborers at the end of the day and receive our just reward, eternal life with God in heaven.
