Want to feel better about yourself? Go hang out with dumb people. Think you aren't worth much? It won't take long to find someone who will make you feel pretty good about yourself. Unfortunately, we tend to compare ourselves with others. We inaccurately compare ourselves with others who we think are "perfect" when in fact, we don't see all of their flaws and only our own. And then we compare ourselves with others and only see their flaws and not our own. Comparing is not helpful unless the purpose is to make others better and to make yourself better. God sent Jesus to be the measuring stick.
Lord, help me to avoid comparing myself to others, whether it is to make myself feel better or when it makes me feel worse.
