Embracing your individuality
Galatians 5:25-26 (MSG) Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.
Isn’t it wonderful that God made us all so different with various giftings, talents, desires, abilities and backgrounds.
He designed us so uniquely, crafting us for a particular purpose in carrying out His plan on earth.
We are an original masterpiece! So why do we often automatically compare ourselves to others?
If we live in the Spirit we will not be tempted to compare ourselves to those around us but we will grasp the wonder of being created uniquely and wonderfully ourselves.
