Starting a New Journal

What's on my workdesk this Wednesday?
There are just a few pages left to my journal,
so I decided to make a new one.
This time, I am trying to make one
using rings, so I can just add pages
as I go along.
Here's the front page so far.
The back page hasn't gone beyond
the background yet.

My journal page for today.
The bible reading, Matthew 20:1-16 is all about 
the mercy and generosity of God.
The laborers who came early
complained that the master
paid them the same wages as
those who he hired to work for the last hour.
"These last ones worked only an hour,
and you have made them equal to us,
who bore the day's burden and the heat,"
grumbled the workers.
"My friend, I am not cheating you.
Did you not agree to the usual daily wage?
Take what is yours and go...
Are you envious because I am generous?"
the master of the vineyard said.

If when we reach heaven,
we see the corrupt government official there,
the celebrity who lived a promiscuous life,
an atheist,
will we feel like the laborers in the vineyard?
Will we feel God was unfair?
