You are WONDERFULLY made!
Psalm 139: 14
Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous! – how well I know it.
We are all unique and gorgeous in our own way. Like how beautiful the color is of a blooming Lilac and how lovely the fragrance is of a Jasmine. Two different flowers, beautiful in their own special way. But what if I tell you that the Jasmine envies the Lilac for its beauty and the Lilac envies the Jasmine for its scent?
I’ve researched about them, and I admit, Lilacs ARE prettier than Jasmines, but at the same time Jasmines have this wonderful scent that I think is better than the Lilacs. Ha! I would tell them “Look here pretty flowers, you’re all beautiful! But whats the point of living, when you don’t even like how you look, or who you are?”
It is said the the worst enemy of friendship is envy.
To avoid envy…
You have to be grateful with what you have, trust GOD when life feels unfair, and keep focused on GOD’s plan.
1 Corinthians 4: 7
