"Freely you have received, freely give."

Jesus shared the parable of the laborers going into the field at different times of the day. The parable ended with each one getting paid the same amount of money even though they labored for various amounts of time that day. Jesus noted that the owner made the same agreement with each laborer.

In the eyes of God, all of His workers are worthy of the same blessing. God does not judge us on productivity as the world would judge productivity. God measures us this way: are you freely giving to others, what God has freely given to you?

As you communion with Christ and receive from God, share it with those in need. Look to God to supernaturally meet others, as He has supernaturally met you. He will meet your needs, because He promised to. You are His worker and He has declared you worthy in Christ! You are His child and He has entrusted the family business to you. You are just as loved, provided for, and blessed as any other follower of Jesus Christ.

Scriptural Context

"But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (7) And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' (8) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. (9) Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts, (10) nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food." -Matthew 10:6-10 NKJV
