Reflecting on the parable of the workers in the vineyard from Matthew chapter 20, I have come to realize that I need unfair grace. When I complain about something being unfair I am usually taking the position that it has been unfair towards me. The assumption is that I deserve better. When it comes to my position with God, however, it is a dangerous thing to assume a privileged position. This is called self-righteousness. It is the assumption that I have earned my favor with God. But with God none of us deserve his generosity. I need to see myself as the worker that was hired later in the day who received better than he deserved. When I look at my own heart and recognize that I need a saviour, I am glad for God's unfair grace who gives me more and better than I have earned.
