Mirror, mirror on the wall!

If there's a thing that we can't live without, so it's the mirror. We can't go anywhere without first looking at the mirror. And maybe once in a while we ask too " Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?"

The well known question from the evil stepmother of Cinderella. She wanted to be the fairest of them all and the mirror always told her that she was, until one day. Cinderella had grown up and she became the fairest of them all.

 But comparing does not only happen in fairytales. It happens also in real life. Like ours! In fact when we were born, our parents already compares us with other babies. Although they say that in their eyes, we are the most beautiful baby in the world.  But they just can't help it. Many times they ask questions to compare like:
-Does your baby sleeps whole  night or not.
- What  kind of milk the baby gets. Expensive or cheap?
- Who learn to crab or go first
- Who learn to talk first
- Who has the nicest clothes

 And then we grow up, and our parents do everything to help us so we can be the best. And then more comparisons
- Whos the prettiest?
- Whos the most clever
- Who goes to private or public school
- Who recieve more honors and medals

And then comes the adolescence age. Here it is not only  the parents that compares.  Now we too compare and compete with each other. We want to be the best, we want to be the person that everybody likes, we want to be the best dressed, the most popular and so on.

Then we get matured, but still competing and comparing.
-Who has the best job
- who has the best furnitures at home
- who has the nicest or biggest house
- who has the most expensive car
- who has more money
- who has been to many different places
- who has acquired more

But we can't help it. We want to be the best. But God said that:

So we must not compare. And if we lack something, God promised that we only need to:

So the next time we look at the mirror, we can say " Mirror, mirror on the wall, I may not be the fairest of them  all, but I am unique that Jesus loves  and provides for.
