Compared to Others

2 Corinthians 10:12 says, “For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
With most things in this world we compare ourselves to others. We take into account the status quo when we evaluate different aspect of who we are. Yet we may be capable of so much more than the next person. We must remember that God’s judgement of us is not based on what everyone else does. It is based on what I am able to do. Reality is, God might have given me more opportunities and talents than the next guy and therefore expect more of me. If I compare myself to the next guy, then I will fall short of what God demands. Instead let us evaluate ourselves and demand the very best of ourselves. Let us constantly push ourselves to be the best we are capable. Let us never stop short because we compare ourselves to others and are satisfactory in their eyes.
