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!

The Art of Humility


The Bible tells us that IF we would humble ourselves, we WOULD be lifted up at just the right time by God. Humility is a trait of a blessed life. Thinking of others before yourself...looking out for your neighbor...helping a co-worker finish a project on time...all ways to start learning the art of humility. So often we want to "blow our own horn" to make sure everyone else knows that we did something worthy of credit. I remember a story about a turtle and some geese.
A turtle wanted to spend the winter in FL but he knew he could never walk there. He convinced a couple of geese to help him, each one of them taking the end of a piece of rope while the turtle clamped his vice like jaws on the center. The flight went fine until someone on the ground looked up in admiration of the genius in this plan to fly a turtle through the air and asked, “who in the world thought of that?’ Unable to resist the chance to take credit the turtle opened his mouth and said, “I diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid!"
Pride comes before a fall: for the turtle and for you! Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up right when you need it!
