Number one for one and all

In the jostle to be better than others are we losing sight of the fact that each of God's children is perfect, spiritual?

Do you ever feel that those around you are all "number one" and you are second best? Humanly, not everyone wears the crown of success. Yet Christ Jesus explains how real success is to be gained—and this is true for all and can be gained by all. In Mark we read his message: "If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all." Mark 9:35.

To accept feelings of inferiority to others is to believe that God plays favorites—that He has given more good to one of His children than to another. This state of thought is corrected as we understand God's universal, impartial love for all His creation and recognize that each individual's purpose is divine.
