How to subscribe
How Sweet Is Grace | Matthew 20:1-16
The Point: God's gift of grace makes heaven available to all.

The Lesson: As the children come forward give a third of the children a sucker. Ask them not to take the wrapper off.

Good morning, children. I am glad that you chose to come forward to share this special moment with me.

In our lesson we heard Jesus teach us more about heaven. He taught us by telling a story. A farmer goes to town to look for some men to help him in the fields. He agrees to pay them a denarius. In Jesus' day that was about what it would cost to live for a day. Think how happy those men most have felt. They knew that they would have enough money to live on.... click here for the rest of the sermon
