Jesus taught in the parable of the vineyard laborers:
“Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or are you envious because I am generous?”
Matthew 20:15, RSV
Envy will dismantle the patience that is growing within us, robbing us of the joy of God’s blessings when they finally come to us. God is generous, but we all experience that generosity in different ways and at different times.
God’s generosity will not spare us seasons of darkness and doubt. It’s possible that waiting helps us view his generosity with greater clarity.
