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!

Move Towards Love

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.  And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. HEB 10:24-25

When was the last time you really put some thought and energy into making someone else’s life a little better? Or the last time you gave someone a compliment? There is nothing more powerful than encouragement, in fact, my belief is that if you accentuate and point out the good things in others, those areas in them will become stronger. Perhaps we spend way too much time trying to strengthen our weaknesses than developing our strengths. Say kind things, compliment others and point out the good in the people you meet. Use your words and actions to elevate and not to deflate.

Take a few moments right now to think of ways to motivate and spur one another on to good works. Build people up and be careful to not tear them down. And find a place where you can gather with other faith-filled people to grow in your faith and learn the art of hospitality, kindness and how to develop the fruit of the spirit in your life. Now is the time! Let love rule and win the day!
