Every single one of us was bought with a price;
“1 Corinthians 6:20- You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made his own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to him in your body. [AMP]”
And so therefore we don’t need to prove to anyone how valuable we are because we’re loved by Him who created the heavens and the earth….
Comparism with others is what the world teaches us to do but the bible say in;
“Ecclesiastes 4:4- Then I saw that all painful effort in labor and all skill in work comes from man’s rivalry with his neighbor. This is also vanity, a vain striving after the wind and a feeding on it. [AMP]”
Never compare yourself with anybody because it’ll profit you nothing, focus on him, allow him control/be in charge of your life and you’ll evidently enjoy every single benefits listed in this article.
