Comparing with Others

But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.  2 Corinthians 10:12 (ESV)

When was the last time you looked at how someone else looked or what they had (nice house, great marriage, good kids, etc.) and said “If only I had what they have.”? Sad to say, we probably do that more than you’d think. The Bible is pretty clear that if we compare ourselves to others, we are missing the point. The point is not to be like each other (that would be a mess) but to be like Jesus.  Time to refocus.

Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end. Hebrews 12:2 (GNT)
