Old Testament Lesson: Psalm 147 (God is the source of every good gift)
Gospel Lesson: Matthew 20:1-16 (The laborers in the vineyard)
God provides for the needs of His people through the daily tasks we fulfill. For example, we pray for daily bread and God provides our daily bread through farmers, processors, truck drivers, and those who work at Schnucks and Dierbergs or grill hamburgers at McDonalds. These are sacred vocations because God works through them. Whatever we do, whatever our job, we do it as unto the Lord because through our daily tasks the Lord is at work to meet the needs of His people.
