Club 252


on November 12, 2011

Wednesday we talked about the Pharisee & the Publican. Sunday we talk about the Parable of the Vineyard Workers. Both come together so well for a double-wham impact lesson on comparing. We all do it, but it sure causes a heap of trouble in life! “That’s not fair! Why did HE get more??”, “How come SHE can do it & I can’t??”, etc. etc. etc.

Parents deal with it in whining & arguments, but God’s children of all ages give Him grief over the exact same thing. “Gotta keep up with the Joneses”, “Man, I wish WE could go on that vacation.”, “If only my husband was like HER husband.”, “At least I’m not as bad as HE is.”

If you get a chance, go to and click “video”, then “I’ve Got a New Gratitude” to see a great version of the Vineyard Workers Parable. Your kids will enjoy it (& you will, too)! And, if you register, you can hear the great song there under the video section as well as a few other clips on Gratitude. The kid that sings is the Christian version of Justin Bieber! It’s worth registering to unlock the extras.

How much better our lives would be if we could learn to keep our eyes on Christ instead of others around us. Let’s purpose to live that out in front of our children. And intentionally teach them this month that comparing is a big fat waste of time, energy, & is a huge joy & gratitude killer.
