Over the course of this year, a New Testament scripture returns to my mind over and over again.
God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well…
(from Romans 12: 6, in the New Living Translation)
Wondering: Do you think I’ll ever learn to stop comparing myself (and what I am able to offer the world) with other people (and the many things that they are able to accomplish)?
The verse above that says,
… We are all parts of his one body, and each of us has different work to do. And since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others.
Some days it’s easier than others, to be “at peace” with the abilities I have, and not to just be a Jan Brady among a crowd of Marcias.
