Philippians 2:13: “For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose.”

When God created the Earth, He literally invented creativity.  Think about your favorite animal.  It has its own unique characteristics and is absolutely beautiful in your eyes.  Now, someone else might have a different favorite animal and you might look at that creature and have no clue why they value it so much.  But, God created them both and He said that ALL of His creation is good.

Let’s take it a step further.  God created all of us with different personalities, strengths, gifts, and talents.  Some personalities don’t work well together. Some gifts or talents might over power the others.  But, ALL of God’s creation is good.  So, the next time you look at your brother or sister in Christ with contempt or frustration, remember it is God who is working in them.  Ask God to give you compassion for your brothers and sisters.  Build each other up and encourage one another by sharing the work that God is doing in and through you.
