Comparing ourselves

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. II Corinthians 10:12

Do not compare yourselves to others. I have a tendency sometimes to do this, I see someone doing something for the Lord and think I should do that too. God is usually not leading me in that direction. God made each one of us different. We need to use our gifts and abilities that God gave to us for His glory. He has a plan for each of us.

When you compare yourself to others you are comparing yourself to another sinner. Comparing yourself to others will: depress you, discourage you, and take your eyes off God to put on another person, the list goes on and on.

Praise God for making you a unique individual.

Have a blessed day,
