And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius.
Heaven’s economy is far different than that of this world. The very next verse has the laborers arguing that they had to work all day for the same pay those who only worked an hour received. It’s the same with salvation: A deathbed repentant garners the same heavenly reward those who have labored for Christ most of their lives receive. God is the generous giver here, we should turn our entitlement into thankfulness. That is a heavenly attitude.
