Thinking one is entitled to anything at all is itself vile, abominable, evil ungratefulness to God

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

The Word of God commands us to thank God for all things, whether good or bad. Thankfulness to God is a manifestation of not only contentment, but humility. Unthankfulness, and lack of contentment, manifesting in one's belief that one is entitled to anything at all, is pride. Unthankfulness towards God is vile, wicked, evil, abominable and disgusting. It is worthy all all contempt from God, just the mere belief in one's entitlement to anything, whether that be the food one eats, the clothes one wears or the breath one has. 

None of the food you eat, or the breath you have is deserved. You are not entitled to it. You have no rights. That one even believes in one's rights, even to such things, is itself vile, disgusting, evil, abominable. 

Thus, the 'good works' that people do in seeking such things to satisfy one's unthankfulness are filthy rags. The 'good works' humanitarians do for the poor in the manner of spirit of worldly sympathy are filthy rags. They are unthankful, proud, and evil, feeling envy and discontentment on behalf of others for the things they do not deserve, such as food and water, which are the precise opposite of what they deserve. 

Such are the good works of those under the spirit of mammon, manifested in earthly sympathy for others, because of a fear of lack of things which no human deserves.
