Bible Reading:  2 Corinthians 10:12, Ecclesiastes 9:11
Memory Verse: We do not have the audacity to put ourselves in the same class or compare ourselves with some who [supply testimonials to] commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they lack wisdom andbehave like fools. 2 Corinthians 10:12 (AMP)

As humans, we tend to compare ourselves with another. Be blessed by this write up I stumbled on: “I was privileged to attend the wedding of the daughter of a good friend and former classmate in the College. As I sat as part of the guests at the reception listening to the proud MOB (Mother of The Bride) giving her speech, I reflected on how far we’ve come as former classmates in school. I considered how her children are of marriageable age (the youngest just turned 20), while mine are still teenagers and I recalled another classmate of ours whose son just graduated as a medical doctor as mine, but our other friend’s son was just about entering secondary school. As I pondered on why it seems some are lagging behind, the face of another of our classmate flashed in my mind and I remembered that his children are still in nursery school while some of my classmates are yet to find their missing ribs. At this point, it dawned on me that though we were all classmates and graduated together same year, life has shuffled us and placed us in different classes today. We were classmates in school, but not classmates in life. Everyone has his unique class. I concluded that in the school of life there are no classmates, because life is a class of one. Again, ten years after I was employed into my dream job, getting a second promotion became a prayer point. One day, a colleague that we came in together on same level walked up to me and said ‘Sis, we came in together and I have gotten three promotions and you, just one. Is there something you are not doing?’ Though I left him feeling bad but not too long after I realised that in the school of life there are no classmates. Life is a class of one. He is on his path while I am on mine. Just 3 years after that, I became his boss. Have you considered why from the same branch of a tree you have both ripe and unripe fruits? The seeds were released same time, exposed to same nutrients and environmental conditions yet, some got ripe before others. Identical twins that deliberately wait for each other to be in the same class, engage in the same business and even wed on the same day may not get their wives pregnant on the same day. Life is a differentiator. Life is a class of one. Then, why do we look at another and feel inadequate, like we are not where we should be? Why would someone that has been privileged to be in a somewhat lofty position look down on others like he is superior in some way? Life is a class of one.

Quote: Classmates don’t end in the same class in life. Life is a class of one.
Prophetic Decree: Receive grace to run in your own race, in your own time, even as you fulfill your destiny, in Jesus name.
