“So the last will be first and the first last" -- MATTHEW 20:16

You've heard the saying "it's not where you start, but how you finish."  This certainly applies to this Bible passage.  We have responsibility not only for our own lives, but for the lives of others as well.  We are called to generously share our gifts with others, not hoard them for our own use.  Our gratitude and generosity helps us live "God-centered" lives no "self-centered" lives.
