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!

Wise or Foolish?

Matt 7:24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
In Matthew 7 Jesus was giving a building seminar. Each of us is in a building program. Jesus said that when we are obedient to His commands it is like building on a solid and stable foundation. When we are rebellious and self-serving, we are building on sand which is unstable and tends to shift. The fact is that rains will come down and winds will blow against all that we build. If we start with the right fundamentals and the proper foundation, then what we build will last: a home, a family, a marriage, a career: even a life that is devoted to the Lord! 
Are you putting His words into practice today? How secure is your foundation? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word. So does a solid, well established building. Build wisely!
