THE TRUTH

Society distorts our identity and causes us to
compare ourselves with others. Others will tell
you what they see, but they don’t see as God
sees. And the truth is, others want to pull you
down – so they can compare favorably to you.
Others will tell you that you must live up to a
certain standard of beauty or achievement or
education – but the problem is you always
have to do more, be more, accomplish more.
By comparing yourself to others you are not
wise. It always makes you feel less than.
That’s why Paul said in 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.”
