"We won't be distracted by comparison if we are captivated with purpose." Bob Goff -- It's so easy to slip into the comparison trap, isn't it? I scroll through people's highlight reels and constatnly find myself questioning myself and my worth. Truth be told I have lived most of my life comparing myself to others. At first, it was school and sports (and by sports, I mean my lack of participation). As I got older, I began comparing other metrics: job title, income, relationship status, and worldly successes. There is an infinite number of catagories upon which I can compare myself and an almost infinite number of people to compare myself to. Comparisons are always unfair, always require metrics, rob precious time, often result in resentment, and deprive joy. Comparison adds no value, meaning, or fulfillment to life. So why then do I do it? Especially when I know how devestating the consequences can be. I want to be so captivated with God's purpose for my life that I don't have time for comparison games.
