Last week I took my son out to the West Desert in Utah looking for bugs for his 9th grade biology assignment to make a collection. While we were driving along this dirt road, we saw something moving and stopped the car. It turned out to be a tarantula, which we excitedly collected and returned as a live specimen to his biology teacher. I thought to myself – that thing is a GIANT. Well, that is only true compared to other, smaller spiders. Compared to me, that spider is pretty small. As you face the giants in your life, whether it be a large debt, a challenging relationship, or a daunting health condition; remember that it is only “giant” compared to something else – usually compared to what you have experienced before or compared to what you think you can handle. Keep the perspective that giants are all relative, and work on finding something in your life that is bigger than your giant – like your God, your vision, or your purpose.
It’s smaller than a dollar!

I don’t care compared to what. That’s an enormous spider.
