23When [Jesus] entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him as he was teaching, and said, “By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” 24Jesus said to them, “I will also ask you one question; if you tell me the answer, then I will also tell you by what authority

“Are you envious because I am generous?”  Yes.  I guess I am. Jesus told a parable about a landowner with a vineyard who went to the marketplace to find day laborers to work.  He hired a bunch, agreeing to pay the usual daily wage, and they went to work.  Several times throughout the day, the landowner saw others idle in

Matthew 18:21-35

21Peter came and said to [Jesus], “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” 22Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times. 23“For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. 24When he began the
