Jesus is not like other kings. In the end, Jesus is always more generous towards others than you want or they deserve. He is more just in what He does for you than you probably noticed or expected from Him. If He gives you no less than He promised, you’re disappointed. If He gives another far more than they earned or deserved, you’re mad at Him. This is what the kingdom of heaven is like, what the King of heaven is like. Expect Him to be outrageously generous towards others, and completely faithful and just in His promise for you.
