Comparison


We have different gifts, according to the grace given us… -Romans 12:6 NIV

If you feel like you are stuck in the trap of comparison this devotion is for you. It is easy to focus on what everybody else has that you don’t. But it is impossible to gain happiness by traveling down this path of negativity.

Don’t forget all the special gifts God has given you. Whether you have a natural love and gift for children, adults, building relationships, creating, cleaning, singing or working on computers- God gifted you!

If everyone in the world was gifted to speak, whom would God use to write? Who would teach children? Where would music come from? As a Christian, you are part of a family, and you must work in your own individual giftings to be effective as part of the unified body of Christ.

Instead of growing envious, try thanking God for the way He has gifted those around you. The truth is we are all made differently, and that’s a good thing! Know that you are uniquely and wonderfully made, whatever you do, do it all for the Glory of God.

Prayer Focus

  • Ask God to help you discover your gifting’s and talents.
  • Pray and thank God for your peers and what God is doing through them.
