Cultivate your own capabilities. . . . Enjoy being you! (Charles Swindoll, author)

Swindoll illustrates his point: “Rabbits don’t fly. Eagles don’t swim. Ducks look funny trying to climb. Squirrels don’t have feathers. . . . Stop comparing. There’s plenty of room in the forest.” One of life’s problems for many people is comparing themselves with others and envying some trait or ability they wished they had. But God created each us differently. Be happy about it.

In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. (Romans 12:6)
