The Curse of Comparison – 06/02/2019

 

Key Verse(s): Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct.  Galatians 6:4-5 (MSG) [1]

 

 

The Curse of Comparison

 

Don’t conform to someone else’s dream, be transformed by God’s dream that is exclusively for you. You are never going to be better at being someone else than they are at being themselves. It sounds like it would be common sense, but the older I get, the more I realize that common sense isn’t all that common.

 

We compare ourselves to others all the time – an often we compare our greatest weaknesses to their greatest strengths – what a recipe for failure. It’s OK to admire a quality in another; it’s another matter to wish you were someone else. The rejection of one’s self is self-destructive.

 

We will only know our place of greatest potential when we take the time to consistently commune with the Holy Spirit (see John 15:4-6). Only He knows the mind of the Father, and only the Father knows the ultimate purpose of your life
