Gospel of Matthew 20:1-16A

Jeffy’s Reflection

In the Gospel of Matthew 20:1-16A, it talks about how a landowner gave the workers that worked only an hour and the workers that worked all day the same pay. The last sentence is what everyone knows,”Thus, the last will be first and the first will be last.”

Jesus taught us to treat others the same way you want to be treated. No one person is better than the other. A good example is what happened in Houston a few weeks ago. A terrible storm came over the area and displaced families and took their homes away. Shelters were getting full for those who were evacuated. But there was this furniture store owner who opened his doors to those who needed a place to sleep because the shelters were full.

By opening his doors and letting those families use his beds to sleep in made those families have one less thing to worry about. By giving a helping hand to those who need our help is our christian duty.

If we can just help one person, that person in return will help another, thus paying it forward. By treating others the same and not judging is a hard thing to do, so we must take small steps and ensure that everyone is first and not last.
