Curiosity did not kill the cat, comparison did!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent many a moment on my journey to living with purpose comparing myself to others. What I’ve FINALLY realized is that I lose out on being me when I’m trying to be somebody else.
There will always be somebody whose purpose looks better, funner, prettier, messier, busier, and even more important-er. :) But we aren’t to waste our life by comparing ourselves to others. We are instead called to live our lives serving others.
Our purpose is to please God, not people. 1 Thess. 2:4 NLT
That’s it! Please God. Not people. Not our friends, family, co-workers, ministry partners. Just God!
When we waste our precious moments comparing what we have or don’t have to others, we miss out on the opportunity to use our gifts and talents. When are eyes are on others purposes, we have no time to step out into our own future to grow our own gifts and talents. Put your eyes on God. He’ll reveal that purpose as you seek Him and look to serve others.
Your purpose lies within you. Your purpose awaits you.
Rule for purposeful living: Quit comparing yourself to others, it kills the growth of your purpose.
Do you struggle with comparing your purpose in life to others life journey’s?
