Losing Our Identity

2 Corinthians 10:12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. One of the hardest things to do when you are unhappy, bored or disouraged is to not compare your life with someone else's. Some have called it a comparison trap. Oftentimes when we are idle or restless in our own lives, we seem to notice what is going on and into the lives of others. When this happens we lose our own identity. It's not wise to compare yourself to another person or your life to their life.  Don't fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others. You are exactly the way you are supposed to be. Don't let the weakness in you affect the greatness in you. You have been given all that you need to be the success that God desires for you. Settle down and settle in to that best version of you that we all want to see. You are amazing!

Real Love

Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Real love. Not cheap. Not misguided. Not envious or puffed up. Sincere. REAL. We all search for it. We all crave it. The need to be loved, be needed and to belong. Real love can only be found inside of a personal relationship with Christ. 
When was the last time you hated what was evil? I mean really got angry over someone done wrong or an injustice taking place? In this word today we are encouraged to not only hate the bad but to get a grip on the good. Look for it. See it. Embrace it. It is evident in how we treat each other. By thinking of others above ourselves. You see, you CANNOT "fall" out of real love because it is always thinking of the other person. You fall INTO real love. You choose to walk out of it by allowing your thoughts, actions and words to become self-seeking and self-centered. Love IS sincere. Real love.
Keep it REAL today. Be enthusiastic about doing good FOR and TO others. Keep the spiritual fervor level high!
