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

self

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

NOT

 

Know your Father’s delight

in created

YOU

 

– 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)
