Back To School Tip #4 – Quit Comparing

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. – Phil 4:8 (NIV)

Have you noticed how easy it is to compare yourself to others? Perhaps you noticed that someone has a better phone than you do. Or maybe another person just always seems to say the right thing at the right time and everyone likes them.

It’s so easy to see what others have, compare it to what you have, and feel like you fall short.

The problem with comparison is that it will always leave you unhappy and unfulfilled.
