So true! Thank you for the great reminder. We have the opportunity to practice this at home so many times during the day.
1 Cor. 6:19-20 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
A lovely reminder that we do progress at everything at our own individual pace. A good thing. Let us never compare ourselves with others for good or for bad. None of us are any better or worse than our Brothers and Sisters. Love to all.
Peace and Many Blessings!

Daily Gems We All Progress at Different Rates ---------------------------------------- -----------
"Each one of us will travel a different road during this life. Each progresses at a different rate. Temptations that trouble your brother may not challenge you at all. Strengths that you possess may seem impossible to another. "Never look down on those who are less perfect than you. Don't be upset because someone can't sew as well as you, can't throw as well as you, can't row or hoe as well as you. "We are all children of our Heavenly Father. And we are here with the same purpose: to learn to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves (see Mark 12:30-31)." Topics: ability, growth, eternal perspective
