Mid Day Meditation: Stop Comparing

A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.-Proverbs 14:30

One of the fastest ways of discouraging yourself and getting trapped by the sin of envy is when you compare yourself to others.

God has a specific plan for you and you won’t accomplish that plan by looking at others.

Count your blessings and not the blessings of someone else. Count what you have, not what you don’t. Think about how lucky you are to have what you have, to have the people in your life who care about you, to be alive at all.
