Workers in the Vineyard

A Penny and God's Goodness

BY MARTIN LUTHER

The substance of the parable consists not in the penny, what it is, nor in the different hours; but in earning and acquiring, or how one can earn the penny; that as here the first presumed to obtain the penny and even more by their own merit, and yet the last received the same amount because of the goodness of the householder.
