It seems unfair that if someone puts in more work on a project that they would get paid the same as someone who does less work. At some point in time many have felt that way over those who lead such a scandalous life, yet as the scandal’s life draws to a close, he confesses with his lips that Jesus Christ died for his scandalous life as well.
We can relate to the parable that Jesus tells in Matthew 20 when those who had labored long and hard get the same wage as those who had just been hired.
Yet we must rejoice that Jesus has indeed chosen to reward all who do the good work of believing in the one God has sent, even Jesus Christ our Lord, receive the same gift, forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation.
