Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful that God doesn't show favorites!
I just read in Matthew 19; in this passage, Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a scenario in which a master hired workers at different times during the day. At the end of the day, he payed them all the same, even though they had not worked for the same amounts of time. As I think about this story, I'm really grateful that God doesn't show favorites! It's not like a game: we don't have to earn a certain amount of points to achieve a certain level of blessing! In the end, all Christians, both "new" and "old", will spend eternity with Christ!! And while we are here on this earth, He won't treat some believers better just because they are more "spiritual" than other believers. If that were the case...I'D BE IN TROUBLE!!! :-) I'm definitely not as "spiritual" as I should be!!
Thank you Lord!
