Compare class dare not
2ND CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 10 12 THRU 18
12* Not that we dare to class or compare ourselves with some of those who recommend themselves. But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.h13But we will not boast beyond measure but will keep to the limits* God has apportioned us, namely, to reach even to you.14For we are not overreaching ourselves, as though we did not reach you; we indeed first came to you with the gospel of Christ.15We are not boasting beyond measure, in other people’s labors; yet our hope is that, as your faith increases, our influence among you may be greatly enlarged, within our proper limits,16so that we may preach the gospel even beyond you, not boasting of work already done in another’s sphere.i17j “Whoever boasts, should boast in the Lord.”*18For it is not the one who recommends himself who is approved,* but the one whom the Lord recommends.
I remember meeting a man one time at a prominent salesforce meeting who seemingly understood the art of the sale. His name was Zig Ziglar and I was in awe by his story recognizing something he stated that seems to resonate throughout the world. He said and I quote, “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” He was stating the Biblical reference to treat our brothers and sisters your neighbors as yourselves. To help others is to increase faith.
The influence you seem to garner within the ranks of some sort of organization or ministry within our own walls of faith we surround ourselves with must remain in check boasting only in Christ making Jesus you’re everything where placing God First approves the boasting without limits that only God can portion to each and everyone of us as we seek to have everything God wills in our life while we support sharing salvation living redeemed in love, faith and hope of Charity; Jesus! Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and Rose for me. Prayer intentions. IN Jesus Name. Amen.
I am a poet obedient to Christ,

**Not sphere of others taste**
Compare class dare not
Themselves compare each other
Understanding absent God limits forgot
Christ gospel self pride Paul did smother
Limits proper increases faith
Enlarge greatly influence states
Work boasting not sphere of others taste
Gospel preaching Lord boasting relate
Recommended Lord approved He does consecrate
