Be Grateful For What God Has Given YOU

"For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the laborers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. And when they had received it, they murmured against the good man of the house, Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?

So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen (Mathew 20:1-16).

God Is Gracious To All (Mathew 5:45)

God created us in His image (Genesis 1:27), we should be grateful for our live's. "For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude (1 Timothy 4:4). God made a way to redeem us back to Him so that we may spend eternity with Him. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

God Is No Respecter Of Persons

God does not show favoritism (Acts 10:34). That is, He is not unfair, bias, or in favor of one thing or person compared with or over another. Age does not matter, nor length of time served. Whosoever will accept God's free gift [Salvation through Faith in Jesus Christ] will receive the same benefit - Eternal Life, which no man deserves. God is gracious and His mercy endures forever. Stop looking at what everyone else has and be grateful for what God has given YOU. Serve the Lord with gladness (Psalm 100:2).

Every Praise Is To Our God
