Everything about the Christendom is not a competition. If you must compete, compete with yourself. Unhealthy competition is blinding. Even more blinding is the constant ill-checks to see what the other person is doing to ensure you’re doing better than them.
The energy you exert on keeping up with social media could be channelled into other useful life endeavours. I’m not writing to you from a place of perfection but as an alarm clock reminding you to constantly put this behaviour and conscience in check.
Agree with yourself today not to push your way to the front to the detriment of others. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage, for everything about the Christendom is not a competition.

I come to thee this day, not to judge but to appeal and remind thee to show an act of kindness. I have a bone to pick with thee because thou art not walking in this path I speak of.
Hear ye this day that thou shalt be nice to the inhabitants of the Earth just like Christ is, giving His all selflessly so thou mayest be rich.
Thou shouldst consider reaching out to people and making it a habit without waiting for Christmas. If I mayest suggest, thou can call people just to say hello or check on them, for a storm rages in the heart and household of many.
Thou can squeeze a tiny seed of love offering into the hand of people. Lookest around thee for thou shall see; some clothe their misery, hurt or pain and wear a smile on their face. So brethren, I urge thee to look deeper and let the Holy Spirit showest ye who to help for they are among thee.
Thou can hug with reassuring words of comfort, and smile often at people. Thou can offer food, clothing or shelter if thou can afford these.
By all means, thou must do better, be better and act better. Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
