We understand how the world pushes us to compare ourselves to one another. After all, if we were all content we wouldn’t buy enough stuff. But surely this wouldn’t be the case in the church? As we read, it is and has been from the beginning. We are just as likely to compare our vocal talents, prayer habits or speaking ability to someone else in the church as we are to compare our 2010 Honda to our neighbor’s 2019 Acura.
1. Have you found yourself feeling spiritually inadequate when you compare yourself to others in the church?
2. Do you believe that God views you the same way?
Challenge: Knowing our gifts and talents allows us to feel less competitive in all areas of our lives. Have you taken a survey or course like Strength Finders to discover your strengths that you can use in the church or community? If not, consider spending the time to check out this course.
