Comparing Ourselves

    2 Corinthians 10:12 says, “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”

    It is easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves with others. It is easy to say “I am better than they are”, however this is not the standard by which we are to measure ourselves. Even if we are better than everyone else we can still fall short in God’s eyes. Instead of following the standard of what everyone else is doing, we must follow the standard of Jesus Christ and what He would do.
