Did you ever see the movie Toy Story? What’s your favorite part? I like it when Buzz thinks he’s a real space ranger, and when he tries stuff it just works by accident, like his ‘flying’.
The first one is mostly about how Woody is jealous that Buzz is getting all the attention, since Woody has been the favorite toy all these years. But in the end, they become friends.
We’ve been talking about being a good friend–one thing is to not get jealous when a friend is better at something than you are. Make sure and celebrate if your friend gets picked to be on All-Stars even if you don’t, or she gets chosen to have the main part in the school play, that you wanted. You are part of a community, and we support each other.
27 Now here is what I am trying to say: All of you together are the one body of Christ, and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it.
1 Corinthians 12: 27 (TLB)
Dear Lord, Help me to not compare myself to others. You made me exactly how you wanted me, and we are all part of your family. Amen.
