Devotions from Judy’s heart

While at Kurt’s we have observed how different each of the grandkids are and their involvement in various activities that befit them. Paige is Miss Clean so likes volleyball that is indoors and not too hot or sticky.Lily is very competitive and doesn’t mind at all in getting dirty and hot if they are winning. Grant is very social and a free spirit. He likes to be teamed up with a special friend at soccer and can be out in the field giggling and dancing around. Each one is doing what they enjoy and they seem happy to watch their siblings in their events too. Why do we often want others in the Body to just like us rather than different and able to bring a new perspective into our lives?  Can we rejoice when others are succeeding in their lives and we may not be doing as well at the time? We are told to rejoice with those that rejoice and weep with those who weep. ( Rom. 12:15)  We are not to compare ourselves for it says in Rom. 6:4 “Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else.”
