Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load. Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.
These passages are not super-clear to me this morning. But I can certainly relate to the temptation to compare myself and my work to others and their accomplishments. What a useless habit that is! I answer to God for my choices and my behavior. I must always be open to good instruction from others, but it is my responsibility to make the right choices.
Holy Father, you are my teacher and my guide. Show me the right way to do all things. Amen
