Advent Day 19
The Grass is Greener Where You Water It
|Boundary marks on the fields|
Passage Reading: Matthew 13:3-9
Above is a picture of boundary marks on a field in Israel. Each of us is given talents, time, and resources for which we are responsible for. God gives us a "boundary" of responsibility. But we often compare our lives to other people's. We often think why they have certain things and we don't. We often ask God for "more," but we can't even take care of what we already have. Our job is to be responsible for what He's given us. If this is all that God gives us, we give thanks. If God expands our boundary of responsibility, we also give thanks. The grass is not greener on the other side, but where we water it.
