God Blessed Morning Family!
When we look over our Life and compare it to our current status we hope to see that there has been some growth over the years. We can easily see that there has been some physical growth in our temples but at times we struggle with seeing the changes which have occurred in our economic growth for as time moves onward so does our expenses. We may also struggle to see our Spiritual growth in which we have grown closer to God but not with His Children for in areas of economic and Spiritual growth we struggle to separate the two for we tend to fall victim to comparing our status in each category with the levels of growth with that in which we covet on a daily basis. Society tells us we are not successful if we have not achieved a particular financial status by a particular age and we are not good Christians if we have not followed a specific Spirirual path in which man has defined. This is where we compromise what we Know for what we are told and begin to compare ourselves with what we are told with what we Know. For what we Know is that we are Children of God unique in all aspects and therefore our paths are not the same but we allow ourselves to compare against one another our levels of achievement which were never meant to be the same. Stop comparing your Life to those around you and Live it in the manner in which God intended it to be that which is unique and specific to you and no one else. For if we were all to follow in each others footsteps then what would be the point in God making us individuals with a specific destiny. Be yourself and you will never fail for only failure is achieved when we attempt to compare ourselves to others and follow in the footsteps that were never defined for us to walk in, for every step is unique and impossible to duplicate. For there is only one God who will never be duplicated nor will He be compared and therefore He will never expect the same from you. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
