Don't Compare Yourself to Others

MATTHEW 25:15-18

“And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also.  But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money.”


Everyone has something different to give and contribute. The Lord gives us individual talents because we all have a part to play in his plan. Stop looking at what others have and start doing something with what God has already put in your hands.


I know that I am part of your bigger plan Lord. I want to play my part focusing on what you have given me and not comparing myself to others. I trust you and put my future in your hands, in Jesus name, Amen!


GO DEEPER

Do you spend most of your time comparing yourself to others?

What part do you play in God’s bigger plan?
