Whom The Lord Commemds

 

Lord let me not fall
into comparisons

or struggle to
commend

knowing only
Your approval

is what matters
in the end.

**********

You are with me and teach me not to compare myself with others.

**********

“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.”

“For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.”

2 Corinthians 10:12,18 NKJV

Commending

source – Wikipedia

“So when they had appointed elders in every church, and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed.”  Acts 14:23 NKJV

Commend means to put in the care of another; to entrust. (Webster’s New World Dictionary)

Thank You , Lord, for being so trustworthy. And here’s a simple poem . . .

We can only do
what we can do

for it’s never really
about us

giving others
to the Lord

trusting in the grace
of Jesus.

God bless you as you commend someone to Him today!

Comparing and Measuring

“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.”  2 Corinthians 10:12

When I’m around someone who commends their self, I begin to feel less than them.

Lord, please give me the wisdom and grace to be with those who promote themselves without giving in to the temptation to do likewise.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Seal of Approval

I’ve found it is best for me
to just turn away

when measuring and comparing start
and not enter that fray

but stick close to You
listening to what You say

and let the blessing of Your presence
be my commendation for this day.
