We feel we’re being treated fairly when we get what we deserve. But what happens when we DON’T get what we deserve? What if there is no obvious payoff for all of our hard work? What if, despite all our laziness and failure, we’re still (to our astonishment) rewarded magnificently? None of this satisfies our innate sense of fairness. But, as we learn from Jesus’ Parable of the Labourers in the Vineyard, such is the nature of God’s divine love. It is, to our sensibilities, rather unfair. But that is the beauty of it.
