Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get satisfaction of the job well done, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else. Galatians 6:4NLT.
The Bible says we should never compare ourselves to others but how many of us tend to do it anyway? I will be honest, comparing myself to others was once my Achilles’ Heel. I was prone to comparing EVERYTHING. I compared grades, I compared schools, I compared degrees, you name it I compared
Ever find yourself thinking the grass really is greener on the other side? DO NOT!!! For one thing, it undermines your ability to be grateful for what God has given you. It also leads you into discontentment because you will always find people who appear to be better off than you. Apostle Paul says such comparisons are foolish, “In all this comparing and grading and competing, they quite miss the point.” (2 Corinthians 10:12b Msg) If you focus on what you are not, what you do not have, who you are not, then you devalue who God actually made you to be, and what He called you to do. We are each different and have different levels of responsibility and authority, but we are all equally valuable in the sight of God. Don't spend your life looking at others and defining yourself by what you are not, rather look to Christ and discover all that He has created you to be in Him.
One of the reasons Apostle Paul was used so greatly by God was that he refused to be distracted from his purpose by comparing himself with others. We should do the same thing! What is your thing? What has the Lord put into your life that drives you? Whatever it is that the Lord has given YOU to do, do that well, and relax and enjoy it! Do it well, and do it for the glory of God.
Comparing myself to others may have fueled my incredible drive to succeed in everything but I've come to realise that my life is unique, I'm God's creation, designed with individual strengths and talents, perfectly suited to be who God created me to be! God has blessed me with incredible talents that it will be ungrateful to compare to the next man - I'm at the point in my life where I am comfortable with who I am - I am comfortable with my journey in life, my talents, my personality and I AM COMFORTABLE WITH MY OWN GRACE. I'm more interested in becoming that women that God has called me to be. When I get tempted to compare, I just recall His promises and the fact that He has a special plan for my life that is unique unto me. If I but knew the plans and call He has for my life I would never entertain thoughts of wanting to be something that I am not. I trust God. Period.
