How often do you find yourself struggling to measure up? This is such a fruitless endeavor. In fact, we will never measure up to people’s expectations, no matter how hard we try. Because we are human, and other’s are too, we will never fully measure up. When we fully realize this we are freed from a tremendous burden. There will always be greater and lesser people from us. Making comparisons, to see if we measure up, is very taxing. Scripture tells us, “Know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So, we, too have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law” (Galatians 2:16).
