Comparison Kills

tulips-edit

 

It can be so difficult to find time to do everything we want to do each day. It just seems we need more working hours in a day. Housework, schoolwork, husband time, quiet time, and children time. It’s all a balancing act that we strive to get right. We see all the edited lives on social media and compare our lives with those. So we begin to feel guilty and less than.

We have to be careful not to let social media deprive us of joy. Comparing our lives to that of others will take a toll on our minds. When we begin to try and be someone that the Father didn’t create us to be, we tread a dangerous line.

We weren’t created to be like anyone else, but who He desires we be.

The Father isn’t wanting one in the same people. We are all different with one common goal: to please the Father. Don’t compare your bloopers with someone else’s highlights.  We all have bad days. We all have areas we’re more successful in than others.

Do what you are called to do with joy and stop comparing your life to your friends, neighbors, or even strangers. Don’t let Satan make you feel less than or guilty just because you can’t do what someone else does. Be who God desires you to be and not what others wish.

Father, thank You for creating us all unique, yet with one goal in mind. Help us to put off the weight of comparison. We desire to be who You want us to be, not who others desire us to be. Help us to only seek to please You. Give us strength to walk out our calling an out lives the way You desire. We praise You for the work You’re doing in us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
