MAY/JUNE 2017 GRANGE NEWS
Have you ever compared yourself to someone? Maybe you’ve compared yourself to a coworker who received a higher position, or an entrepreneur who made more in a day than you might make in 5 years? Have you ever compared yourself to people who you consider less accomplished than yourself?
Teddy Roosevelt once said, ‘comparison is the thief of joy’. That’s because comparing oneself to another often leads to discouragement or pride. It isn’t a healthy practice and should be avoided.
Remember that we are all different in many ways. God will ultimately hold you accountable for what you were given, not what others have received. Our calling is to be responsible with the opportunities that God provides us. Do your best with what you are given.
Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else. ~Galatians 6:4
