Good morning boys and girls,
It's so fun to see you here at church and especially to see you come up and sit and visit with me. Thanks for listening. How are you? You look wonderful and happy.
If I asked you what two plus two is what would be your answer? I knew you would probably say four. That's correct in regular mathematics. But did you know that God's math is different? Once Jesus told a parable about a man who worked in a vineyard for all day and another man worked only an hour and they both got the same pay.
Other workers complained because they did not understand Jesus math.
