An Extraordinary Effort for an Extraordinary Hope
An "extra" merits extra. Extra hours of work must justly be compensated with extra payments. As a norm, labors beyond the working hours determined by law are required to be compensated with "overtime pay".
But in God's goodness, it is plausible that work done undertime be paid same as overtime pay!
Undertime, the opposite of overtime, is the difference between hours worked and the expected or contracted hours. In the example in Matthew, those who worked undertime called about the eleventh hour, received more than what they deserved. This story shows the goodness of the Creator. The hope is, anybody deserving will be compensated of what he really deserves!
What is hoped for by God is that men within the boundaries of their habitation will seek Him.
Traversing frontiers just to seek God can be considered something "extraordinary.” But there are people who will brave to crush the barriers and the unseen and unexpected to seek God for blessings!
These people subject of this prophecy deserve the company of the God they are seeking and His blessings! He said, "I will go also!" And this favor goes with promises.
To travel distances with the hustle and dazzle that go with it, to be in a place where God promises His presence to be, is worth it; more yet if it can be considered the trip of a lifetime!
A black commonly despised by other races and a eunuch at that (a eunuch is a castrated male) travelled from Ethiopia to Jerusalem and back to worship God and earn His favor.
Members of the Church of God International will travel thousands of miles to join and represent their countries and places of origin in the International Thanksgiving to be held at Santa Catarina, Brazil soonest. This means they are "going beyond" boundaries of their habitation to seek God's blessings and mercy. Such is something that can be considered "extraordinary" especially for Filipinos who are poor. But they will bravely face the challenges of that extraordinary travel they are not used to in their homeland. It is because of faith and the extraordinary HOPE of receiving extraordinary favors from the Lord who abounds with extraordinary good things in His treasure chest!
I can only wish for your safety and your salvation. May God bless you!
