With a social media driven age, comparison almost seems to be a given when we sign on to our social media accounts.
The second we start scrolling, our minds can begin envying and judging other people’s lives.
Why do we have to compare? Why not compliment? Our fleshly, sin nature can drive us to our worst when, we start automatically comparing the moment we see someone and their life that we think is perfect. Their perfect life can actually be a front to get people to like them.
No matter how hard we try to get people to like us, not every single person is going to like us.
It’s just like juicy peaches…
Not everyone likes peaches. Not everyone is going to like us, but that’s okay. Our main goal in life shouldn’t be to strive for likeness from others. If that was our main goal, we would be incredibly sad most of the time.
Our main goal should be to live for God and please Him in all that we do. His opinion is the only one that matters.
Along the same lines, pleasing God includes treating everyone with love and kindness. If we are a Christian, that doesn’t give us the right to treat other Christians poorly.
We also shouldn’t be comparing our walk with God with others. We have no idea what others are going through. They may have the same struggles we do.
So, why compare, when we could be helping to build up others by encouraging and praying for them?
Instead of comparing, why not be thankful for God’s blessings in their life and then reflect on all that God has blessed us with?
God has blessed each of us with more than we could possibly imagine!
Let’s be thankful for all that God has blessed us with and seek to share God’s love with others instead of comparing!
