We are experts at comparison. We compare our appearance, our jobs, our families, our relationships, our intelligence, our homes . . . Anything that can be measured we measure. And the things that can’t be measured? Well, we find a way to determine their worth too.
It is exhausting, this treadmill of comparing ourselves. We assume that we are not measuring up; we convince ourselves we are not satisfied. We focus our minds and hearts on the effort of trying to prove to others–and, especially, to ourselves–that we are valuable.
And then we forget how perfectly made we are.
In this episode, we ask ourselves some questions and invite God into the raw, vulnerable places where we feel we are lacking. We ask God to come in. We invite Jesus into each place . . . We picture him there, filling them, right now. . .
