"Each one should test his own actions.  Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to someone else, for each one should carry his own load."  - Galatians 6:4

 Dear Jesus, your verse from Galatians is very insightful for me.  You have uniquely suited me to live my own life with you.  I know that no one can serve exactly like me nor can I serve like them.  Often I get distracted by what others are doing and want to compare myself to them to see how I am doing.  Help me just to test my own thoughts and motives by filtering them through your word.  Help me to love others but not compare myself to them.  I want to be happy and content with my own life of love without measuring it by other people's abilities or interests.  Also, thank you that you loved me before I showed any worthiness.  Your love for me gives me stability and peace.  AMEN

 We live for an audience of One.
