Comparison Can Lead to Condemnation
When is the last time you gave yourself grace? God lavishes His grace on you, but you are quick to berate yourself for not living up to His gift – as if you ever could! You judge yourself based on the performance of those around you. You’ll never be able to duplicate them; you were never meant to. Comparison can lead to condemnation. God doesn’t want someone else’s performance; He wants your heart. The treasure He’s seeking is you. Give yourself grace and forgiveness. Jesus already has.
“Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.” (Galatians 6:4 NLT)
