This topic is collecting lesson ideas for teaching the Parable of the Vineyard Laborers, Matthew 20:1-16.
The parable is one about "fairness" which resonates with kids. Theologically speaking, Jesus was addressing God's favor on the outcasts, sinners, and tax collectors that Jesus invited into the Kingdom of God.
“But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’
Many of the initial suggestions were collected while this post was an entry in our Lesson Help forum.
This parable doesn't have much about it here at Rotation.org because its not considered a "major" parable by the Rotation Model Sunday School folks who originally created and tend to visit this site. Rotation Modelers teach one parable for several weeks in a row so they don't have time to do every single one with kids.
