New & Improved-Comparison

Your walk with Christ will transform you. The new and improved version of you will be more like Jesus as His love will give you the power and strength to overcome life challenges. You know that Jesus will be with you every step of the way. One thing that God didn’t have in mind when He created you was comparison. When you compare yourself to others it does not honor or glorify God. Where comparison begins, contentment ends. All of a sudden you feel inferior. You want to be wealthier, thinner, or prettier when you compare your life to the highlights of someone else’s life. Your walk in life is unique to you. It will never be the same as another persons which makes comparing pointless. When you worry about the people around you then focus is taken off the one in front of you, which is Jesus. You need to be sold out for Jesus no matter what other people are doing. Ask yourself, who or what is going to define my significance? If you are placing that task on someone other than Jesus, then you are running a race that you will never win. You can only win the race that is marked out for you by Jesus. If you find yourself not feeling joy for others when they succeed, you may be running a race that is not your own. Find your significance through Jesus and follow Him. No one can beat you at being you. Ask Jesus who He is calling you to be and run that race.
