In Matthew 20:1-16, Jesus told the story of the vineyard and the owner. The owner went out early in the morning and hired workers for his vineyard. They agreed on a penny for the day’s work. The owner went out at 9 am and 12 noon and 3pm and hired workers for the vineyard. They agreed to work for a penny. The owner went out at 5pm and found men idle. He hired them for a penny also. Finally, the day ended and called all to recieve their payment. He started with the last to the first. The first hires saw the owner made everyone a penny. They thinking they would recieve more. When they received a penny, they started complaining against the owner. The owner said you have received what you agreed to. He said are you evil because I am good. Then jesus said the last shall be first and the first shall be last. For many are called but few are chosen.
