It is easy to get caught up in comparing our perceived effectiveness for God through comparison with other people. However, the reality is God does not expect us to be like someone else. He created us for a unique purpose for His glory. 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 says, 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Ultimately, nothing can effectively be used for God’s glory unless it is done through Him. If we try to accomplish grandiose tasks without Him in the process, then it is for our glory and we forgo glorifying God in the process.
