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, 5 MSG)
But let every person carefully scrutinize and examine and test his own conduct and his own work. He can then have the personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable [in itself alone] without [resorting to] boastful comparison with his neighbor. For every person will have to bear (be equal to understanding and calmly receive) his own [little] load [of oppressive faults]. (Galatians 6:4, 5 AMP)
We’re not, understand, putting ourselves in a league with those who boast that they’re our superiors. We wouldn’t dare do that. But in all this comparing and grading and competing, they quite miss the point. We aren’t making outrageous claims here. We’re sticking to the limits of what God has set for us. But there can be no question that those limits reach to and include you. We’re not moving into someone else’s “territory.” We were already there with you, weren’t we? We were the first ones to get there with the Message of Christ, right? So how can there be any question of overstepping our bounds by writing or visiting you? (2 Corinthians 10:12-14 MSG)
Have you ever feel insecure? What did you do then? Trying to do more? Trying to be more like others? Or are you focusing on what you have been given and take responsibility to do your creative best with your own life, without comparing yourselves with others?
I encourage you to receive this awesomely freeing Truth!
Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.” (John 8:31, 32 MSG)
We won’t let our souls be burdened and bound with any useless things anymore right?
What is your story? And what did you do to overcome them? I would like to listen to them
Have a blessed day!
