Blogging is such an awesome gift. It has showed me the value of caring over ‘comparing’, something that is so rampant in a world where we often try to ‘one up each other.’ It’s been a gift from God to be able to connect with bloggers from around the world and share our stories and learn from each other. Lately, God has used these bloggers to convict me that I haven’t been looking at the example of Jesus and how He served, and I haven’t been serving others with His love in mind. Matthew 20:28 is that verse that just breaks down all ofEven as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’
I’ve been struggling with comparing myself to others instead of caring, so I knew that this had to stop. That’s not pleasing to my Heavenly Father, and it’s just miserable to be focusing on yourself all the time.
How would I start caring? Last night, the idea popped into my head to do a couple shout-outs to some of my FAVORITE bloggers who are constantly blessing and serving others. These girls have challenged me to grow, step out in faith, write better blog posts, care about others more (not myself), and try new things (including new foods.) I’ve been struggling lately with falling into the ‘comparing’ myself to others instead of loving them like Jesus loved us and thanking God for them.
