The value of our work is not measured relative to what others have to offer. When you’re working for God, you produce independent goods. So why do we fall into the comparison trap?
There is room for everyone to win in God’s economy because we serve a God of abundance. So don’t let someone else’s success threaten your own. When we judge our work on its own merits, we don’t fear that we might not be the best. And if we’ve given it our best, we don’t need to fear coming up short.
God doesn’t rank us in order of excellence! Your work is not lesser than or equal to – and certainly not greater than – the work of others. Your work is an act of worship. And we worship best when our focus is on God and pleasing HIS heart.
