Matthew 20:1-16 {20 Days of Giveaways: Day 20}

Matthew 20:1-16

The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard

20 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius[a] for the day and sent them into his vineyard.

“About nine in the morning he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’ So they went.

“He went out again about noon and about three in the afternoon and did the same thing. About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’

“‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.

“He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’

“When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’

“The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. 11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 12 ‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’

13 “But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. 15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’

16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

So what does this parable have to do with 20 Days of Giveaways??? Well, it means if you are just hearing about this HUGE giveaway today, that's okay.

Radical {20 Days of Giveaways: Day 16} and Review

I know this is a book and didn't show up during "book week" of the 20 Days but THIS is a great book!

Every Christians needs to read this:

For our 1st giveaway {a copy of RADICAL!!!} I ask my husband to give his "review" of the book:

I read "Radical" in the winter of 2010/2011 and about six months afterwards I began calling it "orange crack", "the evil book that will ruin your life" and other such descriptive titles, all the while passing it out (hence the orange crack title) to anyone who might possibly read it. I blame David Platt for a lot of my spiritual growth and "Radical" was the tip of the spear so to speak. The book is about "Taking your faith back from the American Dream" and could have been titled "Biblical!" because Dr. Platt not only loves his Bible, but knows it better than 99% of Americans! That being said it should cause us to wince when we're faced with the truth of God's Word standing in stark contrast to what most Christians would say we believe.

Platt points out that, "While the goal of the American dream is to make much of us, the goal of the gospel is to make much of God." A fact that is all too absent in many of our lives and churches where we argue about worship styles and dress codes and what color the carpet should or shouldn't be. It's the colorful insight combined with vivid illustrations that bring "Radical" to life and hopefully to the conclusion, along with Platt that, "The gospel does not prompt you to mere reflection; the gospel requires a response." Get ready, my guess is there will be so many responses that you find yourself needing to make that you'll have to make a list and get started. This book can quite possibly shake up your life in a way you've never experienced and trust me it'll be worth it!
