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!

Love Covers Over All Wrongs

Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.
I know that God is love and that His love is unconditional and powerful. But today I ponder this idea of love covering offenses...love covers all wrongs
People have a tendency to run off with few facts and full of emotion when it comes to gossip and/or slander. Fire goes out without wood and quarrels disappear when gossip stops. (Proverbs 26:20) Unfortunately, church folks are some of the best at running to the phone instead of Gods throne. Pray before you say! 
I think what God was hoping we would understand was that we have the power to love folks through a hard time. We can also choose to restore rather than exposing them in their period of weakness. Trust me, we will all need this type of mercy at some point in our lives. Remember the Golden Rule?
Maybe you know someone who is going through it right now. Don't throw a log on the fire. Stop and use love to snuff out the flame. Love will always cover over all wrongs!
