When we’re talking about the dangers of comparison, it’s important to point out the difference between unhealthy comparison and healthy aspiration. Comparison fuels feelings of inadequacy, jealousy, discouragement and anger. Aspiration, particularly when focused on our walk of faith, can help us develop greater discipline, a closer walk with God and a more productive life.
1. In which area(s) of your life do you most aspire to improve?
2. Conversely, which areas of your life provide you with the greatest temptation to slip into unhealthy comparison?
Challenge: Make a list of what things/talents/possessions you covet to possess. Confess this as sin and ask God to reveal His truth to you yet again- you are enough!
