Sunday Blog: God's Workmanship

It is easy to look at movie stars, business icons or pro athletes and compare them to our own life.  Even though every one is human with their own unique struggles, comparing yourself to others can lead to a feeling of inadequacy.  God created each of his children with a different path, distinctly designed for them.  So instead of comparing yourselves to others, I believe we should measure ourselves against what God has uniquely designed for our individual life. 

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  -Ephesians 2:10

He has showed you, O man, what is good.   and what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.  - Micah 6:8

My prayer is that instead of measuring myself against others, that I will measure myself against God's unique plan for my life. As God's workmanship, we can be a good and faithful servant.
