“If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body” (1Corithians 12:15-16).
Why do we look at one another and want conformity? “Unless you see things as I do, you are wrong?” Look at the Lord’s creation and what do you see? A great variety and diversity. Live with what the Lord has given you and do all you can, for you stand only before Him. He is the One who is creating all things for His pleasure. Abide in the Lord and seek Him above all things.
Lord, I do judge all day long. Help me to let go of the desire to take Your place and rest in the truth that You are the author and finisher of my faith. Guide me in Your goodness that I would now and always turn to You knowing that You are doing for all what needs to be done. Let me rejoice in the fact that there will be only one of me in eternity. Let me rejoice in this truth for others.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way and You have sent Your Spirit to be in me to guide me. Help me now and always to trust in what You are doing. Teach me to rejoice in the gifts of others and to not covet. Guide me in Your goodness to know that You are authoring my faith and will lead me all the days of my life. Keep my eyes focused upon You, dear Lord, now and always. Amen.
