Daily Inspiration, February 27th

“Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct.” (Galatians 6: 4-5, New Living Translation)

This is sage advice. Comparing ourselves to others is a distraction from doing our own work and doing it well. When we look away from our tasks, we are likely to make mistakes and miss details. A carpenter checking out another craftsman’s work while trying to wield a hammer, will likely miss the nail and maybe hit something unintended!

This biblical admonition is practical, but it also resonates with spiritual truth. We are each responsible for our own conduct, as the message says, and our true job satisfaction is found as we remember that it is all really between you and God. Your employment and enjoyment are specifically designed by God to please Him and to also please you, who He knows so well.

Trust God enough to trust yourself. Your art, your expressiveness, your ideas, your output, may not look like anyone else’s. It is incomparably yours, and it is a gift of God to you. The unique way in which you radiate God’s goodness and utilize His qualities, is just what you need to be doing. No one can do your work for you. And no one can do your work better than you can.

Keep your eyes on your own paper, as my grammar school teachers used to say! You don’t need to copy or to cheat or to compare. You have God guiding your hand to do what only you can magnificently do!
