Status Quo

“When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise”  2 Corinthians 10:12 (NIV)

If we live our lives to just doing as good, or slightly better than the majority, then we can’t expect a lot out of life. Striving for a high standard is what God wants to empower us to do.

There once were two men walking out in the wilderness. They spotted a bear in the distance who was looking to attack. One of the guys quickly started putting on his running shoes. The other guy said, “why are you doing that? There is no way to outrun that bear.” The man replied, “I don’t have to outrun the bear, I only have to outrun you!”

God made us all unique. Our goal is to allow Him to make us the best “me” we were created to be. Not just better than our neighbor.


Heavenly Father, don’t let me be satisfied with just being and doing like those around me. Help me be the best “me” I can be. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
