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!

Business vs. Busyness


Many people today tend to confuse activity for achievement. They may be busy but they aren't really achieving anything. I heard someone describe the difference between effectiveness and efficiency. Efficiency is doing things right. Effectiveness is doing the right things.
Let me expound on that  and say that excellence is doing the right things right. Those who know Christ and are filled with His spirit and trust in Him do the right things right at the right time.
Many times we spend so much energy in doing things that we fail to achieve the results that we aimed for. Remember Martha when Jesus went to her house and Mary was there? Martha was running around totally service motivated. She was very, very busy. She was busy doing "stuff". It was all good stuff. Mary sat at the feet of Jesus. Jesus looked at Martha, the busy one, and said, “Martha, you are careful and troubled about many things”. What he was telling her is that there is a difference in busyness and business. He was saying your activity is prohibiting your achievement. Careful and troubled people seldom use faith. You know already that faith without works is dead. Well works without faith is too!
If we can get our business right with God we won't fall into a trap of busyness. Don't let an abundance of activity keep you from an anointed achievement. Get your business right with God today!
