Don’t Compare – Be Uniquely You!

I Samuel 18:5-9

“Whatever Saul asked David to do, David did it successfully. So Saul made him a commander in his army, an appointment that was applauded by the fighting men and officers alike. But something happened when the victorious Israelite army was returning home after David had killed Goliath. Women came out from all the towns along the way to celebrate and to cheer for King Saul, and they sang and danced for joy with tambourines and cymbals. This was their song: “Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands!”. This made Saul very angry. “What’s this?” He said. “They credit David with ten thousands and me with only thousands. Next they”ll be making him their king!”. So from that time on Saul kept a jealous eye on David.”

Reflection

1. Have you arrived at a place in your spiritual walk where you have learned to love and be content with who God has made you to be?

2. Has comparison placed a wedge between you and another woman?

Contentment is finding satisfaction and deciding to be thankful despite the circumstances. There is no such thing as the perfect body, the perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect career. So stop reaching for things that are unattainable. Instead, be satisfied with the purpose God created for your life. He will help you and give you strength to be you not someone else!
