it's never too late!

Today's Gospel reading is the well known parable of the workers in the vineyard. It is a wonderful affirmation of how it is never too late to begin to align your life to God's will, because our creator in his love is glad to welcome us at whichever point in our lives that we choose to turn to him.

But that is not the same as saying that one should leave it to the last possible moment ... we read very many places in Scripture of the danger of leading our lives solely according to our own passions and pleasures, planning to change our ways when we are too old to enjoy them anymore! Because that day may never come ... the warning that the time to repent may never come ... at least not with a date stamp on it! We know not the day nor the hour ... so if you already hear the call that God has on your life, the time to change your life around is now ... with no worry that you are not worthy ... because it is never too late ... until it is too late for anything.
