Three Ways To Stop The Comparison Game TODAY

We’ve all played the game. You know it and I know it, the comparison game is one that rears it’s ugliness and traps us even in our best moments. Somehow, someway this comparison game runs rampant among women. And, not just among women but between women as this game we play in our heads facilitates broken friendships, missed life callings, and all out sin. Yep, I said sin. I don’t like writing that anymore than I like reading that my seemingly innocuous thoughts and comparisons are considered by the Lord as flat out sin. This truth straight from the book of Galatians served as a holy kick in the pants to get over myself.

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, JEALOUSY, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. (Galatians 5:19-23 emphasis mine)

 For, this jealousy and envy that we allow to have it’s say in our minds serves no good purpose and steal the joy we find when we sit and live content right where God has us. 

Because I’ve played the comparison game and lost way too many times to count, I thought I would lay it all on the line and share some tools that I personally use to just STOP the game. These tools and weapons and “game chips” have been wielded during those time when the ugliness of comparison threatens my joy and I’ve found meaningful victory, true, God-given victory.

  1. I love that you just flat out called a spade a spade. I feel like i run to the fruit of the spirit but always gloss over the preceding paragraph (that you’ve highlighted here). Really going to meditate on this today. Thanks Sarah!

  2. Hi! My name is Theresa and I just started my own blog a couple of months back at The subject of comparison is an important one. Too many women are blind to their own beauty and strength, because they are too busy wishing they were someone else. I look forward to reading more posts! Please pass along whatever wisdom you can!

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the web the simplest factor to take into account of. I say to you, I definitely get irked even as people consider worries that they just don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you|
