  1. Ch 20, the workers in the vineyard... Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in what others do. Oh she's a Sunday school teacher, he's a missionary, they give so much, they have a ministry to do such and such... Then you look and see comparatively what you have done, but the reward is the same for all of us. We all were made for a purpose and our reward in the end will be exactly what was promised - eternal life with the Father. That's worth living for!

  2. I totally agree, Becki! It really puts society’s “labels” and “titles” into perspective, too. This makes me think of the book of Galatians where it says we are ALL one IN Christ.

    A couple of things I had highlighted during this reading that I had not really thought about before were: Matt 18:10, Matt 18:35, and Matt 19:12.

    “Their angels in heaven”—I wonder if this verse (Matt 18:10) is where we get the idea of having a guardian angel from.

    I put a pencil circle around the word “heart” in Matt 18:35.

    “The one who can accept this should accept it”—I know I texted you about this previously concerning the word eunuch but the thing that kind of blew me away was the end of verse 12.
