6/27/13 Daily Devotion

Exodus 20:17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Why do we always compare ourselves to other people? We look towards them as if we were competing in life. We want to surpass them in any way possible, and in many cases this causes strain upon ourselves and our families. Society calls this keeping up with the Jones’, but God calls it sinful. It’s easy to always want more or better things, but we must learn how to be happy with that with which we have been blessed. When we are looking toward others, when we are comparing ourselves to them, we forget how God has blessed us. Look around your house, look at your family and give God the glory for all that He has done.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become grateful for all the blessings You have brought into my life.
