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

Doing What We Can

“She has done what she could.” Mark 14:3

Jesus doesn’t look at what we do and compare it to what others are doing.

Lord, help me to do what I can today, to glorify You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Comparisons

I don’t do as much as the women
up and down my street
and I’m not as well put together
as the new neighbor that I meet
but You don’t line me up beside them
and ask me to compete
but look inside my heart
at what I lay down at Your feet.

Thank each of you for doing what you do!
