The Only Standard

A Facebook post.  That’s how it all started.

It was innocent but, as I read it, I started thinking about how I wished I were more like “that.”  Because “THAT” is awesome. I felt inadequate.  Maybe I should try harder to be like “that.”

Ridiculous, right?  Comparison is a dangerous for many reasons but today I experienced how quickly it depletes joy.

God gently reminded me that He didn’t call His children to be like “that” person. HE is the only standard and He wants to conform us to His image.

Thank Him today for the wonderful way He made and works in YOU!

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.”

Ephesians 5:1
