Responding to the generous landowner
Money quote: "You have made them equal to us." This is the great offense of the generous landowner.
We do not want others to be equal to us. We do not want their stories to be as important as ours. Instead of practicing gratitude for what we have and in response being joyful for others' good fortune, we want to get what we deserve and want others to deserve what they get. We don't want them to have what we have. What an old, old story. And it's to our shame.
