Ungrateful Comparison

Ungrateful in Comparison

Are you ungrateful with those who have been gracious to you (Matthew 20:10)? Of course, to ask is to answer – at least that is what we think should be said. Whereas the answer is likely to be spoken with a strong, “No, I am not ungrateful!” it seems for some that the action of a person speaks louder than the words. Many are ungrateful because the ungrateful ones compare wrong things. In that comparison the ungrateful ones nearly always seem to value themselves as being less than how they are actually viewed. The gracious act of another ought not to be thought as something less than what it is. RT
