James 1;9-11 ''Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.''
As I went through BJ's Plants and Produce, I enjoyed looking at all the pretty flowers they had for sale. I have to limit my wandering eye because it gets expensive quick.
We are as unique as flowers are and will also wither away. A petunia can't be a rose, so why not be the best petunia you can be. Compete with others and become bitter, compete with yourself and become better. It's not a fair fight to compare ourselves with others because no one's journey is the same. 'Some thru the waters, some thru the flood, some thru the fire but all thru the Blood.'
Grow and bloom in the garden where you were planted. Fertilize yourself with God's resources and you'll be His true creature of beauty.
