Do your part! (Galatians 6:4-5) – Billy Graham

Harrison Bay loon

(Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading – Job 31-32 & Galatians 5-6)

“Each one should test his own actions.  Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each on should carry his own load.”  Galatians 6:4-5

What lessons are there for me in this Scripture?
My relationship to God is personal.  There is no sort of collective arrangement.  I will stand before God as an individual on Judgment Day.  I must make certain that the things I do are right in God’s sight.  That could well be a full-time job!  If I am doing what pleases Him, what joy I will have wherever I am.  I will not need to compare myself to others or compare others to me.  There is no competition involved.  My satisfaction will not come from comparisons but from His approval.  There will always be folks at various ability levels.

Billy Graham was born on November 7th.  God gave him extraordinary spiritual gifts.
