Sunday Verses

we need to stop comparing ourselves to others
Happy Sunday!  I love wildflowers. Each variety is different and beautiful in its own way. Wouldn't it be absurd if the flowers sat around and compared themselves to each other? But, we compare ourselves to others all the time. God created each of us individually and remarkably. Yet, even when we know this, we still compare just about everything--our homes, children, weight, spouses, jobs, vacations, etc. We need to stop. We need to embrace our individuality, our own strengths and weaknesses, and chose to appreciate those traits we admire in others rather than compare. When we trust and value God's opinion of us, we will not feel the need to compare ourselves with others and we will experience more peace and happiness.  This week, let's appreciate our uniqueness and stop the comparison game.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree with you on that Becky. If only the first thing we noticed were the heart & not the exterior shell. Let's keep hoping there will come a day.

    1. Yes!! Having a teenage daughter makes me all that more aware of how unhealthy comparison is for us.

  2. Amen! Comparison is the thief of joy. And Andy Stanley has said, "There's no win in comparison."
