Day 72 Comparison
Sunday, December 4, 2016
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. - Galatians 5:25-26
It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: cutthroat competition; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; If you use your freedom this way, you will not inherit God's kingdom. - Galatians 5:19-21
It is important to run your own race, at your own pace. Not too fast, but not to slowly either. Try not to compare yourself too closely with others. We are all at different stages on our own courses. You can learn from those who have gone before, and you have to privilege those who come behind.
Lord, give me the strength I need to finish my race and the wisdom I need to run it well. And help me to be an encouragement to others.
