How many times have you said, or heard someone else say that they ‘wish I was more like’ someone else?
How many times has someone told you that ‘you need to be more like’ someone else?
Why are we constantly wishing we’re more like someone else or being told we need to be more like someone else, because we are not the same as the person we’re being compared to? The thing is it may be that we want to have some of the same qualities as someone else, but that doesn’t mean we should try and actually be the same as that person.
God made each one of us individually, and so we are each unique. We each have our own qualities, and God has given each of us gifts to use for His glory.
So whenever you think you want to be more like someone else, or someone tells you need to be more like someone else, remember that God made you just the way you are, and that we should only ever want to be more like Christ.
