So here ya go -- today's good words.
"The problem with comparison is that you always feel either better than someone else
or worthless compared to someone else." - Dillon Burroughs
The habit of comparison is a nasty little illness and I find that more often than not, it completely freezes me up to do anything productive or life-giving. When I'm caught in a cycle of comparison, I forget that I am a daughter of the King. Some of the lies I find myself ruminating on are that my art is not good enough, my clothes are not posh enough, my belly not flat enough. I find parts of myself to be worthless compared to someone else, when in reality, none of my worth is found in any of those things.
Our Bible study is doing a 10 week exploration of the Bible and one of the recurring themes is that God called us his people from the very beginning and throughout history He continually draws us back to Himself, based on no merit of our own! I've been dwelling on that thought a lot this week.
I have no idea who Dillon Burroughs is, but I love that his words expose the complete waste of time that comparison is.
