Luke 2:52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

If you have a sibling, you have experienced moments of jealousy, moments of envy. If you have a sibling, you know how it feels, even for just a moment, to be below their existence; but can you imagine being the sibling of Jesus? We read in this passage that Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and from this we can derive that is was to the peril of His siblings. As His knowledge increased, theirs increased, but not in a comparative manner. We must never compare ourselves to others; for if we do, we will always fall short. We must never compare ourselves to others, because we all have different capabilities, different purposes. But as they are combined together for the greater good of the gospel, the work of God shall be accomplished.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me find no need to compare myself to another, for You have made me uniquely and purposefully, that I might be able to fulfill my purpose.
