2 Corn 10:12 – For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

The standard that God has set for your life is the only thing that you should be measuring yourself up against. You do not have to compete with anyone to fulfill your purpose. Comparison to others is a form of competition and competition in the Kingdom results in envy, jealously and strife. All of which are issues of the heart.

Competition is only useful in sporting events, however we have been programmed to compete and jockey for positions our entire lives. As young children many of us grew up in environments saturated in poverty {spiritually & financially}.

These circumstances dramatically impacted our SELF-esteem so the need to establish and cultivate a sense of self worth was highly desired.

In schools of learning… people, places, things, life experiences, junior highs, high schools, colleges, etc… We promote SELF-esteem and SELF-image which is very dangerous..

We need A GOD-esteem and a GOD-image..

Today we stand in a new day, we have been and are being regenerated and transformed into His image. Our being is in Him with the image of yesterday being non-existent. The Kingdom of God need not jockey for employment, careers and business deals. Everything we need to progress is in the house, individually and corporately.
