Stop Comparing! 

At times I run across a post or overhear a conversation regarding what someone thinks about another. Couples post happy relationship pictures all the time, but that doesn’t mean they are truly happy. People post awesome vacation pictures, but at what cost did it take for them to get there? What bill didn’t get paid in order for you to go? Some people secretly try to brag in hopes that people will envy their “make believe life”they are trying to showcase. Sad, but true. We all know people like that…

When will we as a people just love the life God gave us without trying to take a sneak peek at what someone else got going on? What God has for them may not be what He has in store for you. Be okay with that. You may not be working at a fortune 500 company, but whatever job you have, do it to the glory of God. You may not be able to buy the latest and baddest vehicle, but are you grateful for the means of transportation God has currently blessed you with? 

You may be single and home alone on most Friday nights, but you don’t know at what cost your friend endured to be out on a date with someone who could actually care less about them. Many will not admit this, but being single is a blessing. Being married to the wrong person can actually feel like a curse. 

I want to encourage you, yes the enemy will try and cause you to look at the lives of other people and wish yours was theirs. But, stay in your own lane and love your own life. Stop getting into debt trying to live a life you don’t possess. God can do so much more for you if your main focus is to praise/bless him, as oppose to envying someone else’s life, gifts and “grass.” Stop comparing and free yourself.
