Do you find yourself playing the comparison game? Looking at someone else’s life, career, marriage, etc and thinking they’re doing it better than you? The grass always seems to look greener on the other side of the fence. When you play the comparison game, you lose. You either puff yourself up as you think you’re doing it better then them, or you tear yourself down as you think they’re doing it better than you. Either way, you lose. It’s never fair to compare what you know about yourself (everything) to what you know about someone else (only what they show you). What’s more…they have a unique set of circumstances which may be very different from your circumstances. Each person is responsible for their own life and accountable for what they’ve done with what they’ve been given. (Romans 14:12)
If the grass looks greener somewhere else, water your lawn! In other words, don’t abandon your lawn…make it the best that it can be. Invest yourself in having the kind of life, career, marriage, etc that you really want.
