2 Corinthians 10:12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.
Comparisons and competitions will completely destroy your peace. In fact they are the enemy of contentment in your life. The gauge of success in your life is not in the comparison with your neighbour. Some people look like they have an incredible life, in the social media age of presenting our best side this is even more evident, however behind the scenes they are miserable. The gauge of success in our life is not how our lives compares with our people’s. How much stuff we have. The job we do. The marriage we present. The holidays we go on. True success is are we becoming more like Jesus. If you want to measure your life don’t compare just look at the amount of love that flows from your heart. This is the real measure of a life. If you have not love you are just a clanging cymbal.
Prayer Today: That we would not get drawn into comparisons or competing. That we would move in love and compassion regardless of what we gain. That humility would be evident in our lives.
