We need to be grateful

After narrating the parable of the Workers in the Vineyard, we began to reflect. Julia immediately said, "We need to be grateful for what we have, and not be jealous of others. Like the children in Haiti (referring to children in orphanage we are collecting clothing and raising money for) are grateful for food and probably not jealous of us."
The context of discussing plans to help the Haitian children immediately before the lesson nudged Julia into a more immediate, or current, understanding of the parable than the children would usually have.
