Comparing yourself to others distracts you from your own purpose and destiny. Comparison is the cancer to contentment. Comparison is opposite to wisdom. —Robert Madu (Paraphrased)
Robert Madu brought the house down at Hillsong church this morning carrying the Good News of paramount significance in this day and age. And that’s a small glimpse of what I drew up today. I was definitely dumbfounded by God’s message and it felt like it indubitably did stir something in my innermost being. This kind of message just propels you to rethink about yourself, about how you think, your current situation; what is and must be the way you see and receive the things around; and how to appreciate what God has wholesomely endowed you with. You are unique, a masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10), created by God for a great purpose: and that’s to serve Him and love Him. Part of our job is to pursue God, dream big, aim high, work diligently and to the best of our ability while eschewing the bad habit of comparing ourselves with one another. Focus on your own stuff and be the best “you” you can ever be. Call it cheeseballs or cliché, but for me it makes a lot of sense.
