Are rewards the same for all, or do they differ in degree? MATTHEW 20:1ff

MATTHEW 20:1ff—Are rewards the same for all, or do they differ in degree?

PROBLEM: Jesus told a parable of kingdom in each servant got the same pay even though each had worked a different number of hours. in other places, the Bible speaks of different degrees of reward for working in God’s kingdom (cf. 1 Cor. 3:11–15; 2 Cor. 5:10; Rev. 22:12).

: are different degrees of reward in , depending our faithfulness to earth. Jesus said, “I am coming quickly, and My reward with Me, to give to every one according to work” (Rev. 22:12). Paul said each believer’s work be tried by fire and “if anyone’s work he has built it endures, he receive a reward” (1 Cor. 3:14). In 2 Corinthians 5, he says must all appear before the judgment seat of each one receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (v. 10, emphasis added).

The of the parable in Matthew 20 not all rewards be the same, but all rewards are by grace. It to show God rewards the basis of opportunity, not simply accomplishment. Not all the servants had the opportunity to work for the master the same amount of time, but all, nevertheless, were given the same pay. God looks at our disposition as as our actions and judges accordingly.
