I am so surrounded right now with a very clear message about comparing.
Just Don’t Do It!
Friends I just have to ask:
Why in the world do we even play a game that only ends up in a no win situation?
For if we compare ourselves to someone else, what are we truly seeking out?
Do we need someone else to make us feel better about ourselves?
And do we truly need that feeling of insecurity and doubts when we walk away from a comparison moment, feeling less than.
One thing Jesus didn’t do…was compare Himself to anyone other than His Father.
So why do we?
Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. Galatians 6:4 (The Message)
We have over the past few weeks visited the foundation our Creator has laid in regards to Sex. A most purposeful and beautiful foundation. One that when truly lived out in its design is so amazing!
A foundation that finds itself within the walls of marriage. Marriage takes work! Go back and read the verse above, "Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given," Your marriage, the one between you and your spouse.
Friends some of the best advice I have been given over the years that I pull out often…
"Spend your time working on improving yourself, then you won’t have time to compare with others, critique others or judge others"
May we be encouraged to quit wasting time watching movies and comparing ourselves to a Hollywood created version of what Sex should look like!
May we instead be encouraged to reach out and grab our spouse’s hand, and invite God to reveal to us the beauty He has for us. And friends brace yourselves, everything He creates will take your breathe away!
