30 Days to Pray for Body Image: Day 19 - Comparison
Today we talk about Comparison -something that, if you've been around this show any amount of time, you'll know is a hot topic! Comparison is no joke, it's bigger than the memes, and it's hurting us more than we know. I talk all about the ways that comparisons affects us and how we can be free from constant comparison in my book, "The Burden of Better: How a Comparison Free Life Leads to Joy, Peace, and Rest" (You can even download the first chapters for free here if you want to preview it!).
Our verse of the day is 1 Corinthians 4:7: 7 "For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?"
God has a plan for each of our lives, a purpose for each of us, and enough grace for all of us! Can we trust his sovereignty, his plans, and in his wisdom that he knew exactly what he was doing when he created each of us? The only person worthy of our comparison is Jesus-- and praise God there's a remedy for how we will always fall short! (For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.)
