This is paraphrased but you should read it yourself. This just affirms that it is not by works that we are saved. He gives us divine favor just because He loves us! What a wonderful life!

Workers in the vineyard
I love this parable in Matthew 20. Jesus says heaven is like.... A bunch of people got hired to work, one at 9, one at 11, one at 1.. When the time came to pay them they all got the same pay. Some thought that because they worked longer they should get more pay. Rather they all got the same pay as the man who worked the longest. Jesus replied, " I can do what I want with my money, are you stingy that I am generous."
