A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, March 26

Galatians 6:4-5


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.


When reading this scripture, the saying, "Mind your own business," popped into my head, and has stuck there. If I am examining my own actions and tending to my own responsibilities, I am less likely to be caught up in blaming. There is always a good time to look to others, to be helpful. But there is also a time for self-examination and humility.


Holy Lord, today I will not blame anyone else for my own mess, whatever it turns out to be. Help me to look to you for guidance, to examine my own motives and actions, and to mind my own business. Amen

Prayer - Lord, please tame any urge I may have to compare my self to others. They have their gifts and You have graced me with mine. Keep me focused on carrying my own load so that the whole of what is accomplished with my sisters and brothers is greater than the…
