Wig’s Word of God Today 8-22-2012
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
