Deuteronomy 7:7-8

''You were the weakest of all nations, but Yahweh chose you because he loves you and because he had made a promise to your ancestors. Then with his mighty arm, he rescued you from the king of Egypt, who had made you his slaves.'' Deuteronomy 7:7-8

''When I am weak, then I am strong.'' Paul did not come up with those words in a vacuum. They are based on concepts as old as this text in Deuteronomy, even if we would more naturally desire to ignore them.


Thirty-Fourth Day after Pentecost:

Matthew 20:15

''Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Why should you be jealous, if I want to be generous?'' Matthew 20:15

Grace is an interesting and difficult concept for us. We like it when applying it to benefit ourselves, but when it is applied to others our appreciation tends to suffer. Rather than look at grace as a good thing, we often look at it from the perspective our our greed, jealousy, ambition, and a sense that we are being cheated out of something. That is essentially what Jesus was getting at in this parable about the gracious landowner.
