Cost vs. Price

Matthew 20:8 ~ “When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’CostVsPrice2

Do you ever witness some pretty crappy people receiving some pretty hefty blessings and think: “man that just doesn’t seem right?”  I know I do and I see some horrible things happen to the greatest people ever. I don’t have a clear answer but I know counting someone else’s blessings and judging their worthiness to receive them is not our job. Whenever we begin to compare ourselves to others we will always fall short. That thinking is a distraction and is often comparing apples to oranges. Find the greatness in your own fruit. Our walks, experiences… there is promise and purpose and you may just miss yours caught up in what the Joneses got going on. And don’t forget some people are selling their souls for their gain, is it worth your soul? ‪#‎truestory‬

In simple terms…Price is the amount a customer pays for that product or service. The difference between the price that is paid and the cost that is incurred is the profit the business makes when the item sells. If a customer pays $10 for an item that costs the company $5 to produce and sell, the company makes a $5 profit (none of my business.)

Matthew 16:26 (ASV) For what shall a man be profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and forfeit his life? or what shall a man give in exchange for his life?

Think about it…Pray this prayer with me:

Precious Father, Lord Jesus, Wonderful Holy Spirit,
May all my labors for you be done to bless your name and glorify you before the world.
May my times of poverty be embraced as a time for you to teach me about giving thanks and humility during in my poverty.  May my times of plenty be embraced by me as a time for you to teach me about giving thanks and humility in my plenty.  In the name of God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit who lives within me and touches me,
Amen!!
