We have a lust problem in today’s culture. Our potential leaders are often the most at fault for it. We constantly lust after someone else’s skillset or calling, wishing we could be like someone else instead of understanding and accepting our own calling.
It’s time to stop having affairs with other people’s callings and start being faithful to the calling we have been given. Commit to the meaningful work that is in front of you. Run your race. Good sprinters, swimmers, or runners don’t look to the right or left to see where their competition is. Instead, their eyes are fixed ahead of them, where they are going, the next step they have to take, and the finish line that is coming. Now is not the time to compare. It is the time to understand who you are, focus on what is in front of you, and commit to your work.
Only you can do what you were designed to do. Stop trying to do someone else’s job for them; commit to what is in your hands.
