Because the one true mirror is the Word of God, I have to remember becoming more like Him is my one and only goal in this life. I just need compete to be better than I used to be and strive to keep growing. When we compare ourselves to others we will always find someone “not on our level” and then tend to think we are ok because we aren’t “as bad as them”. We may even compare ourselves to someone who actually is a great role model whom we should aspire to be like.
However, at the end of the day, the one and only true standard of perfection is Christ, and until we look into the mirror of His Word and see how much room for improvement we truly have in this life, we’ll never be aspiring toward the right things.
Let’s keep reading and growing each day! Not measuring ourselves against each other but only against ourselves in our quest to become more like Christ.
