“Comparison is the thief of joy.” -Theodore Roosevelt
Trying to compare ourselves to other people is useless. In fact, it will only drag us down. The only comparison we should make is to Christ. Such a comparison is humbling and freeing at the same time. I fall short of Christ’s standard of perfection (Romans 3:23). However, to know that He loved me in such a special way that He would die for me (John 3:16) brings freedom from the awful weight of comparison. Jesus Christ knew who I would be (including my sins) and died for me any way (Romans 5:8). Such a beautiful thought.
So the next time you start down the path of comparison, make sure Christ is in view. He will give you the best view of yourself. His.

Great quote about comparison! It is most definitely a thief.
