Good Morning February 6

Comparing ourselves to other is always a dangerous proposition. If we are thinking about sins, we can always find someone who is worse than we are, so we don’t look so bad. We don’t take seriously that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”, including ourselves. We diminish the seriousness of sin. If we are thinking about accomplishments, there is always someone who does it better than we do, so we can get depressed. Even our own self opinion is not that valuable. The only opinion that is really important is God opinion of us. He has said, “you are my child for Jesus’ sake. I love you. I have given My Son as atonement for your sins. I have given you what talents and abilities you have, to use for my glory. I have made you unique and have a purpose for your life.” The more we take our eyes off of ourselves, and keep them on Jesus, the more we are free from false evaluations. We can truly rejoice in all that God has done for us and does through us.
