You know what is just plain ugly?
Comparing ourselves to others.
Oh man is it easy though! ”Why can’t I be like that…do what she does…have that?” Ugly I tell you, ugly.
Why ugly? Because comparing ourselves to others robs us of the beauty of enjoying just how God weaved us together, which in return, robs God of His glory.
He made you.
He made me.
Unique. Different. Similar.
He knit YOU together for His glory and His purposes.
So if you struggle with comparing yourself to others, remind yourself of this…
You hem me in, behind and before…
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
and lay your hand upon me.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
