The standards we use to measure ourselves directly affects the authenticity of our identity and the way we judge other people.
You will be judged by the same standard you use to judge others. The standards you use for others will be applied to you. Matthew 7:2
Not only are we judged by the same standard we use to judge others but our judgment of others exposes what we think of ourselves.
If you believe that you are of little worth, you won’t value other people either. If you believe that you don’t measure up you will have a comparison mindset. You will work for the approval and acceptance of others, lowering your standards and pretending if necessary to be who and what you think other people want you to be, l beneath your authentic identity.
To the degree that you accept God’s word as true, is the degree to which it will work for you.
If you believe you are beautiful and worthy of love and acceptance, you will be able to love, accept, and find the beauty in others too. If you believe that you’re worthy of every good and perfect gift from God, you will believe that other people are, too.
Many women measure things by the world’s standard.
They allow what they hear and see in pop culture, social media, and entertainment to cloud their judgment about what love is, what acceptance means, and what beauty is supposed to look like. They let it affect how they define their worth.
Maybe you used to judge yourself, your situations, and other people by the world’s standards. It’s time to make God’s Word the standard instead.
Beloved, God’s standards are His love for you and the people around you, His acceptance of those who make Him their God, and His compassion for those who are lost. That we look not only at the outward appearance but also at the heart of people and see the beauty in everything and everyone He created.
