Word for the Week – Compare
Do you ever compare yourself to other moms and think, she is a better mom than me? Why don’t my kids behave like her kids? Or maybe you even compare your children to each other, why can’t my daughter be more like my son?
It’s so easy to fall into the comparison trap. We live in a glamour world that only shows us “perfect”. We all know life is not perfect. Far from it. When we start to compare ourselves with others, we will be discouraged because we don’t measure up or proud because we think “at least I’m so and so.”
Comparison steals our joy. When we compare, we lose our joy in who we are and who are family is. We love our family and friends because of who they are as a unique person, not how the compare or measure up to others. And they love you for your uniqueness too.
Promises from God
Psalms 139:14, “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it well.”
Philippians 2:3, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”
When you start to compare yourself or your kids with others, stop and think of what makes each of you unique and wonderful. For in your uniqueness, there is no comparison with others.
