Compare Not

Let God tell you

who you are


Comparing yourself

to your brothers and sisters in Christ


will only make you feel superior

or inferior


Leave it up to God


Be your absolutely unique


and give yourself grace


to grow in Christ

without pride

or condemnation


The most important thing


is not


to be more like this person here

or that person there


It is to be like Christ!


Compare yourself with others



Know your Father’s delight

in created



– Susie Stewart


We’re not, understand, putting ourselves in a league with those who boast that they’re our superiors. We wouldn’t dare do that. But in all this comparing and grading and competing, they quite miss the point.

– 2 Corinthians 10:12 (MSG)


Am I now trying to win the favor and approval of men, or of God? Or am I seeking to please someone? If I were still trying to be popular with men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.

– Galatians 1:10 (AMP)


But each one must carefully scrutinize his own work [examining his actions, attitudes, and behavior], and then he can have the personal satisfaction and inner joy of doing something commendable without comparing himself to another.

– Galatians 6:4 (AMP)
