Episode 30 is LIVE
Isn’t it time to quit thinking you are either superior or inferior to other people?
I used to have a serious inferiority complex. Funny thing though, at the same time, I also had a superiority complex. I was pretty insecure.
In today’s episode, I discuss a couple of experiences that taught me the importance of seeing all God’s children in the light of spiritual equality. In the process I had to eat big piece of humble pie.
This literally saved my life. I would have probably been broadsided by an 18-wheeler running a red light if God hadn’t shown me my equality to someone I thought was better than me.
We are all different and have unique gifts and talents. But that doesn’t make us more or less important in the eyes of God.
I hope you enjoy this week’s episode. Please let me know if there are any aha moments in your life when you realized you don’t need to compare yourself to others.
Thanks so much for listening.
Here’s the Episode 003, which I mentioned: Praying with the Mindset of Christ.

23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
