Who's The Greatest In Your Life
When, I was growing up I was always happy with all that I was given, it didn't matter
whether it was a card, or just a bow, I was always Thankful and happy to have
Never did I worry about who was better than me, or who could out
do me in things, I didn't care. I never remember being jealous of someone on
anything, or ever tried to do any type of comparison.
Now, as I grew up and was married there were people in my family, which was jealous
of me, some wanted a husband like mine, some wanted a new car like me, some wanted
the furniture like I had, some wanted the nice clothes that I had, some wanted pets
that I had, and the list can go on and on.
Everytime, my husband would buy me
something someone would get jealous about it and literally go in debt to get what I
had that they wanted.
Me, I was always satisfied and thankful for everything, we was brought up that way, I
never remember trying to out weigh anyone, on which, what, how whom it was to be the
greater of them. I was just per-tee thankful and happy for all that was given to me
and I took care of everything that was. I am not the kind of person, to want what
others have, I was happy for them when they got something new, I never tried to out
do them, or be better, or greater than they were. Never tried to be a comparer or
anything, I never understood why people do that.
The only thing I guess, if I compared myself to anything would be a skinnier body :)
. But never have I tried to do any type of comparison on anything or anyone else,
trying to compete with other people. God made me, what I am and who I am and He knew
about me before I was even born, and He knew how I would be and act way before I
But, this don't mean I didn't want to be better at what I was doing, or even that I
wasn't doing. Luke 22:24, we read where the Disciples were arguing over which
one of the was greater than the other one.
Jesus responded to them by saying, that the greatest was actually the one who was
willing to be considered the least or the one who was willing to be a servant.
Jesus, spent allot of time trying to teach His disciples that life in the kingdom of
God is usually the direct opposite of the way of the world or of the flesh.
Jesus, taught His disciples great principles like :
Many who are first will be last, and the last will be first. Mark 10:31,
rejoice with the lost who have been found. Luke 15:6,32, love your enemies and
pray for people who persecute you. Matthew 5:44, it is more blessed to give than to
receive. Acts 20:35
Jesus says; it is true Power!
Be a disciple and determine to live your life by Jesus' Kingdom
principles, not by complaining and trying to compare and compete with other's!
