An Unconditional Love is sustaining and carrying us.

Psalm 23:2

The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.

+++

A sheep in care of the shepherd has all its needs met. It is totally cared for.

So if my Creator is my shepherd…what more do I need?

Is there anything else truly needed above God’s love and care?

In the Catholic lectionary of daily readings, today’s gospel (Mt. 20:1-16) is an example of God’s amazing love. It’s the parable of the landowner who goes out in the morning and hires laborers to work in his vineyard. He goes out again at noon and hires more and again near the end of the day.

When it’s time to pay the laborers…the ones who started at the end of the day get the same amount of payment as the ones who worked all day.

The workers who worked the longest complained that the landowner wasn’t being fair.

But the landowner asked if they were envious because he is generous?

God is willing to pour out gratuitous love and blessings on us regardless of what we have done.

It is not about merit…but grace. 

It is not about our goodness…but God’s goodness.

We are loved unconditionally.

In the light of this Love…we lack nothing.
