For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. – 2 Cor. 10:12
As the Spirit of God leads us to move together in unity, He eliminates competition. We complete one another, not compete against each other. Competition can hinder every member of the Body of Christ from flourishing in the place God has them positioned. The way of the Kingdom is not to celebrate competition, like it is in the world.
In Christ, we are of one mind and in one accord. We are one body, one family. We all rejoice at the blessings of one. Achievements benefit each other. Every joint supplies. Our value is immeasurable. One person’s success may appear to be greater than ours, but it doesn’t make the people greater, or make us a failure. We do not walk by sight, but by faith. What the Lord calls us to do, He enables us to do, regardless of any opposition expressed through competition.
In the natural it may appear as though another person has a position better than ours, but there is always more we don’t know regarding someone’s life. The best position is the one we all have in Christ. We hope to be who He calls us to be, to do what He calls us to do and to rest in knowing how much He loves and values us, from glory to glory!
