How About You Just Work As Well

1 Samuel 18:7-8

7 And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.
8 And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom?

It is amazing to go to a church and there is that one person that works hard for God. They pray hard for everyone. They clap and amen the pastor as he preaches. What is annoying is the one person who gets jealous because they are not working as hard. It’s like king Saul being jealous of David. Saul was a skilled warrior, but at this point David was following everything God instructed. David was willing to work. Saul on the other hand had only wanted the praise and when David received it, Saul could not handle it. All he had to do was work harder and listen to God. That is what is exactly what is happening in churches today. People are getting jealous because you may work harder. They will set there pouting when all they have to do is step up. All they have to do is ask God for the work. Imagine if they prayed just as hard as the go-getter. Imagine if they said amen just as much instead of being jealous. If you are one of these people who have become jealous, I pray for you.
