We all have a tendency to measure ourselves by comparing ourselves to other people. We like to choose people to compare ourselves to that help us feel better about where we are. We don’t have to be perfect, we just have to be better than others. God tells the Israelites to not think of themselves as better than other nations. He also tells them not to think that His great blessings are evidence that they had earned anything. We should receive God’s gifts and enjoy them, but they should keep us humble and make us grateful. If we are honest, the fact that we in no way deserve God’s blessings makes them an even bigger deal. Take a few minutes to thank God for all His blessings that you do not deserve.
