Compared To

It is one thing to be inspired by someone and another to compare yourself to them. 

You are not them. 

God does not compare you to others.

He does not look at your life and wonder why you are not doing what they are doing or living the way they are living. 

“Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:5‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Whether impressed with yourself for being better or depressed because they are better than you – you are looking the wrong way. 

You are looking to others to judge your progress or value. Your value can only truly be seen through the eyes of God. Your progress can only truly be judged by Him alone. 

Do your creative best with your life. 

If you must compare, compare yourself and others to God and recognize how far all fall short of His glory! 

“GOD is higher than anything and anyone, outshining everything you can see in the skies. Who can compare with GOD, our God, so majestically enthroned, Surveying his magnificent heavens and earth?

He picks up the poor from out of the dirt, rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash, Seats them among the honored guests, a place of honor among the brightest and best.

He gives childless couples a family, gives them joy as the parents of children. Hallelujah!”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭113:4-9‬ ‭MSG‬‬
