Called, and Chosen, and Faithful
Cherishing the call of God
“Many be called, but few chosen” (Matthew 20:16).
Christ gave this thought-provoking declaration to conclude the parable of the householder who hired laborers early in the morning to work throughout the day in his vineyard. The laborers agreed to work for a penny.
Later, at the third, sixth, ninth, and eleventh hour, the householder extended the call to
others and promised to pay whatever was right.
