For where you treasure is, there will your heart be also…

Results: Day 18 of 21

This is good. Talking about embracing who God made us to be and not comparing ourselves to others or feeling guilty because they do something we don’t do (or do it better). It got me to thinking (imagine that!)… I think most of us have people who we admire or look up to. Do we want to be LIKE them? Or do we want to BE them? I think there’s nothing wrong with wanting to share some of the good characteristics or habits of those we look up to. Another great thing is when others INSPIRE us with some of the amazing things they do. It’s just important that we don’t start trying to be more like them instead of being happy with who we are and using our own uniqueness to be effective.

The challenge today is to think about who God made us to be and to ponder if we are doing the best we can with the energy, gifts, talents and resources that God has given us in this season of life. She says if we are, then we have no reason to feel guilty if our life or goals don’t look like someone else’s. My advice, if the answer is no, is to prayerfully consider how we can be used more effectively and then GET UP and DO SOMETHING!!!
