The parable of the workers in the vineyard teaches us that God loves each of us individually as if one were the only object of His love. Likewise, the mercy of god is appropriated to each according to one’s need.

How do I experience God’s love and mercy? In turn, how do I love and grant mercy to others? Do I make room for others to be themselves?

Dear God, your love knows no bounds when you love another, it is never at my expense; nor, when you love me, is it at their expense.
