I wasn’t being a good steward of what he had given me in the moment…

There’s so much wisdom in that statement by Colton Dixon of “focus on the here and now.” Galatians 6:4-5 (NIV) says,

4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, 5 for each one should carry their own load.

Our culture is addicted to comparison. Maybe today we can all remove the expectations we’ve put on ourselves and just be present and grateful for what God has done for us in the here and now.
