Christ gave a parable against the envious desire for equality: when the later-hired workers were paid the same amount (for less work), the first workers were envious, though they had received what they had agreed to be paid (Matthew 20). You are due what you are due, you have no excuse to complain when more bounty is given to another.

Yet today many will condemn and speak against showing more favour to one than to another, in direct contradiction of Christ who called it good and lawful: “Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?”

Those who condemn this teach and preach envy, and in doing thus they poison families and sow discord among brethren.

“These six things doth Yahweh hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him … a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” Proverbs 6

This is not a trivial thing!
