Today's daily devotion

No Comparisons

If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load.—Galatians 6:3-5 (NIV)

You spend time on social media and see idealized photographs and posts of others, it’s easy to fall into the trap of comparing and feeling as if you’re not good enough. God wants you to know that you are special— exactly as He created you. Your family, your home, everything you are is not only good enough, it is perfect in His eyes.

Father God, when I look down on myself and feel that I am not good enough, direct my attention where it belongs, looking up to You and Your many blessings.
