Have you ever had a friend or family member
that you put up on a pedestal?
They can do no wrong.
Their appearance is beautiful. They are fit and trim.
They have a great personality.
Their marriage and family look like they stepped
straight out of a tv show?
We all have that person in our lives.
It is at this idealistic image that puts us
in a dangerous position of comparison!
Your struggles may be different than the next persons, but this doesn't lessen the struggle. We also may struggle at different seasons of life. Some people struggle in marriage while others struggle with rebellious kids. Some struggle with self discipline while others struggle with financial strife.
The point is, God teaches us in different ways. But perfection is not a measuring stick in Gods law.
For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it.
Let us know dwell in comparing our cups but yet to savor each drop of goodness The Lord places into our own cup.
