Faith of Jesus Daily Devotional - Day 79

nkjv@Revelation:14:12 @ Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.


nkjv@Matthew:20:1 @ "For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.

nkjv@Matthew:20:2 @ Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

nkjv@Matthew:20:3 @ And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,

nkjv@Matthew:20:4 @ and said to them, "You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.' So they went.

nkjv@Matthew:20:5 @ Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise.

nkjv@Matthew:20:6 @ And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, "Why have you been standing here idle all day?'

nkjv@Matthew:20:7 @ They said to him, "Because no one hired us.' He said to them, "You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive.'

nkjv@Matthew:20:8 @ "So when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, "Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.'

nkjv@Matthew:20:9 @ And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour, they each received a denarius.

nkjv@Matthew:20:10 @ But when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received each a denarius.

nkjv@Matthew:20:11 @ And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner,

nkjv@Matthew:20:12 @ saying, "These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.'

nkjv@Matthew:20:13 @ But he answered one of them and said, "Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius?

nkjv@Matthew:20:14 @ Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you.

nkjv@Matthew:20:15 @ Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?'

nkjv@Matthew:20:16 @ So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen."
