September 24, 2017 | In Matthew’s gospel this week we are presented the vision of divine generosity. The business practices in this parable seem rather strange. Giving workers varying hourly wages that might lead to a class action lawsuit today but this is the way of God’s kingdom.

September 17 | In our reading this week from Matthew’s gospel we hear Peter ask Jesus, “How often should I forgive, Jesus?” Of course, Jesus’ response to Peter’s question doesn’t really provide an answer but rather points out the misdirection of the question itself. How many times should we forgive? The issue is not how much or how often we are asked to forgive or should forgive. The act of forgiveness is already a limitless, measureless act. Forgiveness is never not present in our lives and in our relationships. That’s the issue. Forgiveness is part and parcel of the Kingdom of Heaven. It’s a constant. It’s not optional. It’s not a choice. We want it to be -- and that’s at the heart of Peter’s question.

We have too much to do to stop and consider relationships—or do we?
