Comparing doesn’t make us more benevolent

We have to stop and ask ourselves, What does comparing ourselves to others even do? What’s the value? Why do we do it so much?

The reason why we choose to compare ourselves to others is because of how it makes us feel.

We do it to insulate ourselves. We do it because deep down, we are insecure about where we stand. We can say, “Well yeah, I’m falling short here, here and here but look at that other guy in the next cubicle.”

There is nothing we can do to earn God’s love. Especially by acting better than the people around us. It’s already there in full.
