Step One: Listen to the Word
As you listen once again to this familiar parable, what caught your ear in it today? What image of this vineyard do you still have lingering in your mind?
Step Two: Look into Your Life
Question for Children: How do you experience God being generous to you: through your family, friends, school, or parish?
Question for Youth: This Gospel reminds us that God is always seeking us out and welcoming us into his generous love. Through whom has God reached out to you? Who is always encouraging you to say "yes" to God?
