Some Christians seem to think so, but nowhere in the Bible does God promise that every believer will receive the same material rewards on earth. In fact, the Bible tells us that each believer will even receive different rewards in heaven.
God loves every person, but God’s love does not guarantee that he will bless each of us in the same manner. God blesses in ways specific to each person. We are given unique parents, siblings, experiences, material wealth, heath, intelligence, and talents.
For example, in Genesis 25, when God blesses Jacob and makes him the father of the Israelites (instead of Esau), that is His prerogative. It is silly to compare one person’s blessings to another. In fact, covetousness is a sin! The Bible tells us to be content with what we are given, not be jealous of other people’s blessings.
