Lie #2: “I Need to Be More Like Her”
Women were created by God to be inherently relational. This means we’re always checking in, asking ourselves, “How’s she doing? How’s she doing? How’s she doing?”
This is a reflection of our tender hearts and compassionate natures. It’s a beautiful thing that makes us excellent mamas, wives, and friends. Where we get tripped up is when we follow that first question with, “How am I doing compared with her?” God’s answer? Focus on him and his plan for your life. Your story and strengths belong to you. God doesn’t compare them (or you) to anyone else, and you don’t have to either. Big sigh of relief. So as we explore our strengths together (and live them out with others), let’s go for these three steps: share, care, prayer. And skip the compare.
