BIBLE VERSE FOR FRIDAY

LOOK AT ME
Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?
The toxic combination of comparison, green, and sense of entitlement obliterates kindness and love. It is evident in families torn apart during the executing of loved one's will.
In one parable Jesus describes a landowner who hired workers throughout the day. When it came time to pay them, each worker received the same pay, regardless of when they were hired. The workers who had been there the longest complained the loudest. Their sideways glances at what others received left them ungrateful and full of complaints.
Jesus longs to free us from the poison of comparison. Look at Me He said. He gently reminds us. If we use others as a barometer of our success, we will never be satisfied. The greatest gift He gives each of us is Himself. When we realize this, the possessions of the world stop possessing our souls. We are free to give and receive.
Jesus calls us to His rest, and meekness is His method. The meek man care not at all who is greater than he, for he has long age decided that the esteem of the world is not worth the effort.
