Life Is Not Fair
Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely—be content with your pay.
This is the second Scripture that talks about not comparing your pay with others. Take heed; listen to what God is telling you. Comparing steals your joy and sows seeds of jealousy. Resist and run away from the comparison trap; you will always lose.
Life is not fair. There will be people who make more money than you; therefore, you have to learn to find peace where you are. Train yourself to get in the mindset of “That’s not my story; this is my story...thank you God that I have a story.” It is so easy to look around and “want” someone else’s story. Once you embrace the story God has given you, you can then share your story with others to encourage them.
Father, I don’t want to compare because I lose either way. Either I come away feeling superior, or I feel less than I should. Both thoughts are wrong and are not how you see me. Help me to keep my eyes focused on you alone and to be content with where I am in life. Amen.
