Differences Can Be Appealing
All of us are needed to make life delicious. (See Rom. 12:5.)
Gospel topics: individual worth, self-esteem, tolerance, values
I've always asked myself this question: How many times have doubted myself because I compared myself to someone else?
This is my answer: A lot of the time.
I know it's not something that I should do at all. I know I would find it disturbing if my little girl compared herself to a friend. It would break my heart because I know what precious things lie in her.
So why do I do this? I know that if it hurts me when I only imagine my children doing it, how much more it hurts Heavenly Father?"Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else."
Kim Coates quoted Judy Garland on Sometimes Hard, But Oh-So Worth It.
Oh, how true.
