Our Business

       We see God granting special favors, supernatural or otherwise, to others ~`what do we think and how do we feel?
       First of all, how God grants favors is none of our business.
      Secondly, know that whatever the Lord does is always for the good of all and for his own glory.
      Last, remember the older son in the prodigal son parable? When he got jealous after seeing how the father favored the return of his younger brother, destitute but repentant, with a great celebration, the father said to him, "My son, you are here with me always; everything I have is yours." So, if we don't seem to receive any special favors from the Lord, it could be that he has already given us everything!
       Anyhow, our business is to concentrate on serving the Lord and rejoice in him.
