I have to admit yesterday afternoon I struggled with being less happy about my potential ex-co-worker’s success than I thought. There was a little part of me that felt like if she ends up getting hired she is BY FAR getting the better end of the deal. I am grateful for this day. I am grateful for my new job and learning opportunities but I think it is human nature to wonder if you’re getting the bad end of a deal comparatively when you look at what is happening around you.
1 Peter 2:9-10 (MSG):
“But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.”
That verse gives you perspective. It doesn’t matter at the end of the day where God places us. The job isn’t the “thing”, He is, and we are called and chosen to do his work no matter where we are.
If you find yourself wondering why you got this and not that, or struggling with comparison remember that God has called you for a specific purpose and it will be good.
