Comparison is a tricky thing. I compare my singleness to others relationships, I compare my ministry to others, I compare my work to others and the list could go on. One thing this pointed out to me was, spend time with the Lord, listen to Him attentively and call things for what they are.

Now I can look at things a different way and pray specifically. Social media is wonderful and is often used as a tool to reach people, I use it for that! However, social media can also have its downfalls. But we rarely see their valleys, their down days and hard times.

Those are two things for me that stick out, relationships and ministry. Does this happen to you? Do you find yourself comparing your life to others? Your first reaction may be like mine. No way! But what discourages you? Take a moment to think, do you find yourself comparing your singleness to others relationships? Do you find yourself comparing your children to others?

Do you find yourself comparing your job to others or your ministry to similar ministries? Friend, comparison is the thief of joy and the joy of the Lord is your strength. If your joy is gone, your strength is gone. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each one should carry his own load.

The only standard by which we must measure ourselves is revealed by God through Christ and His Word. Get in your Word! Learn who Jesus is, His character, His love for you, His plan for you. Study His Word! Compare your life only to Jesus, to His character. You are unique. You are the only you. Get alone with God and find out who He wants you to be. Post Listen Attentively. Next Post Trust His Process.
