THE BEST YOU

The apostle Paul said, “Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life” (Galatians 6:4-5 MSG).

Before Thomas Merton followed Christ, he followed money, fame, and society. He shocked many of his colleagues when he exchanged it all for the life of a Trappist monk. Many years later a friend visited the monastery and could see no important difference in him. “Tom, he said, “you haven’t changed at all.” “Why should I? Here,” he said, “our duty is to be more like ourselves, not less.”

You know, God never called you to be anyone other than you. But he does call you to be the best you that you can be. The big question is: at your best, who are you?
