Don’t Compare

Last week, I drove into a fuel station for a refill. My car has a fuel tank capacity of about 60 litres.

While the pump attendant filled my tank, a motorcyclist also rode in to the second pump. Before I knew it, the motorcycle was full and the rider rode off while I was still at the pump.

I got in before the motorcyclist but he left before me.

It suddenly occurred to me that it would be absolutely silly of me to think “I got here before him. How come he is leaving before me?”


Our capacity is not the same.

The truth is there are times in life when we are stuck at the pump of divinity. Those who came in behind us have gone ahead of us; those who learnt from us seem to have outran us; those who graduated years after us are now the ones calling the shots and it seems as though we are stuck.

Could it just be that our capacity is bigger than theirs? Could it be that our own assignment needs longer preparation?

Could it be that our character is being formed for the task ahead?

Could it be their last Chapter and our first or the middle chapter?

Could their journey be ending and ours just starting?

You do not know what you need. Only the One who designed the journey knows what is important.

Why don’t you hold on?

People will often say my friends are doing this,

my mates have done that,

my colleagues have this,

My associates are now..

But I’m still here doing only this   and  having nothing much..

You have been sent for your own unique purpose in this world,

God’s dealings with or in your life should not be an estimation of what is happening in the life of your friend or colleagues.

God’s dealing in your life is very personal and unique for you and should never be an compared in physical and tangible things.

This too shall pass,

Take your gaze off other people’s path and concentrate on your race. You will earn your own unique medal in your way and in your time.

Follow your own path, write your own life story, don’t give up on yourself, never compare and Stay Blessed forever.
