Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

In the past, I often complained that my caliber was lower than others and I didn’t have many gifts. From this verse, I understand that God has given different missions to everyone. We don’t need to compare with others as long as we carry out our function in our place. Just as God’s word says, “The functions are not the same. There is one body. Each does his duty, each in his place and doing his very best, every spark of enthusiasm a flash of light, seeking maturity in life, thus will I be satisfied.” Everyone has their merits and shortcomings. If we can obey the Creator’s sovereignty and arrangements, neither blindly admire nor belittle others, and view ourselves correctly, then we can carry out our function and responsibilities in the right position, and live out a meaningful life.

We all have our own value and significance. It’s the same with all things God created; they all contain God’s goodwill. If there is something that does not have significance, God will let it cease to exist. God’s word says, “In the thoughts of God, He intended to give each and every appearance, and all sorts of functions and uses, to the various living things He created, and so none of the things God made were cut from the same mold. From their exterior to their internal composition, from their living habits to the location that they occupy—each is different. Cows have the appearance of cows, donkeys have the appearance of donkeys, deer have the appearance of deer, and elephants have the appearance of elephants. Can you say which is the best looking, and which is the ugliest? Can you say which is the most useful, and the existence of which is the least necessary? Some people like the way elephants look, but no one uses elephants to plant fields; some people like the way lions and tigers look, for their appearance is the most impressive amongst all things, but can you keep them as pets? In short, when it comes to all things, man should defer to the authority of the Creator, which is to say, defer to the order appointed by the Creator to all things; this is the wisest attitude. Only an attitude of searching for, and obedience to, the original intentions of the Creator is the true acceptance and certainty of the authority of the Creator.
