Think back to the story in the New Testament about the workers who each worked a different amount of time but still received the same pay.

Do you know who would have heartburn with this abudant grace of God?  Jonah.  Jonah does want the Ninevites to repent.  In fact, he doens't even want to deliver the offer. 

Could it be that we stand with Jonah?  Could it be that we would like to be in a position to hand out grace as we see fit?

That isn't how it worked in Ninevah, and its not how it works in the New Testament.  God's grace is abundant, overflowing.  We should all thank God.

For a great sermon that brought this to mind for me, see Songbird's sermon.
