Your time will come

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post below.

Have you ever heard the scripture, "So the last will be first, and the first will be last?" The story is in Matthew 20:1-16 and stems from the parable of the workers in the vineyard. There was a manage who hired many workers. Some he hired first and some he hired much later. Yet when it was time for all of them to be paid, they were paid exactly the same even though the first hired had worked many more hours than the last hired. When the angry workers who were hired first, asked the manager why they were paid the same, the manager replied, ‘Friend, I haven’t been unfair. We agreed on the wage of a dollar, didn’t we? So take it and go. I decided to give to the one who came last the same as you. Can’t I do what I want with my own money? Are you going to get stingy because I am generous?’

Consequently, the parable of the manager and the worker means God gives favor to whom He wants, whenever He wants. What does this have to do with you? Well, for starters, Matthew 20:1 says, “God’s kingdom is like an estate manager who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard" and the great reversal that happens as a result. Consequently, there is no need to compete with anyone. There is no need to compare yourself to anyone. There is no need to feel bad about where you are in life. Are you doing what the Lord told you to do? Are you grinding day in and day out? Are you happy for others when great things happen for them? Then very well, your time will come. Remember what Zechariah 4:10 says, don't despise small beginnings. For, the last will be first, and the first will be last."

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
