While the blessings of the Beatitudes transport us to the fullness of life in the Reign of God, the qualities of discipleship outlined in the blessings are very much concerned with how we live our lives in this present moment. Like them, we also live in days of uncertainty, haunted by threats of violence and by fear. The Beatitudes promise that what we experience today will lead to future joy. Reflecting on this, Sister Barbara Reid, O. What blessings have you experienced in your life as a disciple of Jesus? What blessings do you continue to hope for?
Take time each day this coming week to reflect on one of the Beatitudes.
How can you live it more fully? It can always be read with a still greater faith and a still deeper sense of God.

Your interpretation suggests that the parable illustrates the way that the Kingdom of Heaven operates, not just in terms of money and reward but in many other ways. They have also been overlooked by commentators who tend to focus solely on other, more abstract points. You are right that in the Kingdom of Heaven, and as followers of Jesus, we should rejoice when someone else is blessed, rather than being envious. None of the workers in the vineyard was better off than any other; they were all equally well off despite their different work. Sadly, in the kingdoms of this world, we are encouraged to be envious even when others are equal to us.
As you rightly say, the Kingdom of Heaven is very different.
