Have you ever seen some cute shoes at a store but they didn't fit-or you bought them and then tried them on at home for the first time and they didn't fit? God created you for a unique, great purpose. You can't walk in anyone else's shoes and succeed! So many women compare themselves to other women and feel jealous and envious of them. The Bible says that envy rots the bones. (Proverbs 14:30) It also says in James 3:16 NLT, "For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind." God doesn't want you to feel envious, jealous or "less than" anyone else. Comparison is a big distraction and a trap that will trip you up in your walk with God. Just be unique you, walking in the beautiful "glass slippers" (purpose) for which God created you.
