Play Your Own Role
The only role you are equipped to play in the stage of life is the role of you. Be yourself no matter the pressure to be otherwise. “Jesus commanded Peter, “Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?”-John 18:11. The most foolish thing you can do is compare yourself to others because God has not equipped you to play the role He has equipped them for. “When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise”-2 Corinthians 10:12. Always be yourself. Never do or refrain from doing things because of what others say about you.
