Do you ever have a tendency to measure yourself against others?
I do… and I often come up short! After all, I’m only five foot nothing. Really!!
If I measure me against me,
I could be 6’3″
If I measure me against YOU,
I’m maybe not even 2’2″
So, who do I use?
Whose feet do I choose?
Who carries my blues?
Who walks in my shoes?
“No one,” you say?
“God took His soft clay
And molded a shape –
Unique! Full of play.”
God gifted your soul
Full of treasures untold –
Then He threw out the mold.
You’re more precious than gold.
Who do I measure myself against then?
“No one,” God smiles.
“You’re a one-of-a-kind gem!”
My grandson said, “So what do we do with this knowledge?”
I answered, “Remember, you are unique.
Don’t let your self-esteem be measured by the
size of someone else’s anything!”
(Go back to the clay figure and you can see
what kind of “anything” that caused that deduction!)
Bite your tongue, my friend …
Know you were created PERFECTLY –
and Have a Merry Christmas!

We are all gifted with something! It’s up to each of us to find out what that gift is and to use it for the good of mankind! Comparing ourselves with others is a waste of time and energy.
Awfully wise words from a fella so young! You’re so right, Toki!! God bless you with growing wisdom and discernment all your long life long! <3
A fine message (I was 6′ 3″ once – now I’m a bit shorter and youngsters are getting taller – that has taken some adjustment)
That’s what life entails everyday, doesn’t it? Adjustments! Ah yes… one thing we can count on for sure… CHANGE!
I agree with tokitokit!
