Often in life it is easy to be discouraged because others have their lives together. The reality is that we as people almost always present the best perspective of ourselves but know the realities of our life that others do not.
You see each person presents the best front for themselves and hides what is less pleasant. This is why often our initial impression of others can be quite off.
We are often discouraged because others have their lives together and we do not. You see since we often only see the best side of others we do not know the reality of things.
Life is difficult and comparison is not helpful. You see God has not placed the same challenges in each person's life. We all face unique things in life.
We should live ideally day by day resting in God's grace. Our faithfulness to God is all that matters. It does not matter how our works or life or faith compares to others. It is often not even possible for us to know.
The only question is what God would have us do today out of love for him. How will we live out the love of God in the world today.
