When you take inventory of your walk with Jesus who do you look to?
Do you size yourself up against your neighbor, pastor, spouse or friend?
Or do you look to Jesus? His Word?
Comparing ourselves to others is a sure way to either
a) provide yourself an opportunity to feel defeated or
b) provide yourself with an opportunity to become proud.
Neither pride nor defeat should make up a Christian’s character.
The Word will instruct you, reassure you and even at times correct you. Look to Jesus for feedback on how you’re doing.
