Daily devotional: Follow Jesus

Scripture
Jesus replied, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? As for you, follow me."
John 21:22 NLT

Observation
Jesus calls each of us to specific callings of obedience--e.g., level of giving, level of and types of sacrifice, and even the type of work we do. I definitely have been challenged in the same way not to compare myself to the callings or liberties that others have. Rather, I need to follow Jesus and what He tells me to do through the Holy Spirit.

Application
Don't compare to others. Follow the Holy Spirit's leading in how He wants me to follow Him.

Prayer
Lord, I give You my life and all that I have. Please clearly direct me and help me follow You exactly how You want me to. I don't want to be distracted by things that are not part of Your best plan for me. And I don't want to miss out on what You have for me. I love you!
