Comparison Will Kill Ya

17 May

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the deathly cancer of comparison.

applesWhen we compare our lives to someone else, or compare our things to other things, or when we compare our skills to other people, we often come out on the short end of the deal, and feel awful. We might also compare to others, and come out ahead, which is pride. So, either way, we lose. God didn’t design comparison. It came from the devil’s mouth. He compared the first humans to God himself. “You can be like him”, he said. How has comparison slithered into your life, and how does it wreak havoc?

    If it’s comparing, only time we should compare ourselves should be with the old us and new us to see how far we have come and how much we have accomplished. Everyone lives in their own time zone in life so it’s pointless to compare the journey of ours with someone else’s.
