Is it envy that runs in your veins? “These last ones worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us, who bore the day’s burden and the heat.” Matthew 20:12

Is it envy that runs in your veins?

These last ones worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us, who bore the day’s burden and the heat. Matthew 20:12

Ezekiel 34:1-11, Psalm 23 & Matthew 20:1-16

The sin of envy can make a person give up his godly desires of faith, hope and love. We can look at the person who seems in our eyes to do less than you but his wage or status seems to steal away your desires to love and be loved for the person you are in Christ just because someone earns the same as you but surely seems to do less.

Life is more about living in each moment for God’s Purpose that living in each moment to measure up to someone else. Remember, its’ about you and God anyway and has nothing to do with what anyone else does or earns when it comes to the meeting of God on judgment day.

There is something called modesty, unpretentiousness and humility that should drive your desires to live life in restraint void of judgment and envy. Our lives are wrapped up in trying to prove who is the fastest, prettiest and richest stealing away our joy of being committed to God’s Truth in belief, loyalty and fidelity dedicated only to His Son’s Redemption of sin allowing peace in the knowledge of Eternal Life. Amen.

So we ask in prayer: Dear Father of all, we pray today our life is void sinful envy filled instead with joy of Your Truth. We pray a local Veteran named Sandman who has surgery today. We pray for strength LORD to be all we can for You. We pray for tolerance of all people. We accept Your Divine Will in all things. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!

 

It’s the envy that runs in your veins– Matthew 20:1-16

 

The owner hired his help

Not expecting each to yelp

Why does each make what we earn?

The more I work the less I earn?

 

For as the day wore on

The owner hired more men

Each worked the same

Each wore a different grin

 

For when he paid them all

The last was first to call

The wages were all the same

His generosity wasn’t to blame

 

It’s the envy that runs in your veins

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
