Take inspiration from the workers in the vineyard – Matthew 20:1-16 – when the landowner went out not once, not twice but FIVE times to gather workers for the vineyard. He sought out workers throughout the day because there was more than enough work to be done. And the best part – each worker was paid the same amount regardless of when they started their work!
One of my favorite verses in Scripture comes with this reality:
“But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?”
In other words, God is loving and generous to everyone willing to work in His vineyard regardless when they start. Too often, I doubt God’s generosity and believe Him to be stingy. He’s not – ever!
So, consider getting started, or restarting a Little Flowers, Blue Knights or another of our groups. Just because you didn’t started in August or September doesn’t mean you can’t get started now.
It is easy and flexible enough for you to jump right in and if you’ve done it before it will be even easier.
There’s work to be done in the vineyard for the Lord and our gardens of virtue are a wonderful training ground.
