Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

“There but for the grace of God go I.”  Who hasn’t said that at one time or another.  We have to be very careful and honest when we say these words.  It is so easy for these words to slip into a sense of pride rather than a thanks to God for where He has us in our walk with Him.  When we are walking with God our walk is perfect.  It is not a perfect walk for anyone else.  It is God Who makes our individual way perfect.  Everything we face in our walk is there by the grace of God for His glory and for our becoming one in and with Him.   It is God’s grace that has us exactly where we are, not where anyone else is.  When we see others on their walk we must be careful not to look in judgement or even compair ourselves with where they are in their walk.  We are only to compair ourselves to the fruits God seeks to grow within us through His Holy Spirit.  When we feel the urge to compair ourselves with anyone else let’s read 1 Corinthians 13 and see how we are doing displaying, living, thinking and feeling the attributes of love
