When You Want To Fall into The Trap Of Comparison

by IFEOMA SAMUEL

Many times we feel like failures because we are
constantly in pursuit of other peoples acquisitions, someone else’s dream and
what they are. A dangerous path of comparison leads headlong into a life of
failure.

One of the chapters, in the book, “Overcomefailure; Get Back Up on Your Feet”, digs deep on comparison and breaking free
from the bondage.

That's such an important topic, Ifeoma. I know I've falen into the comparison trap many times. And congratulations on your new book!I hope it does incredibly well. I've been so busy this summer and during June was "unplugged" in many ways, so I had to go back through my emails to see about your launch. Forgive me for being so distracted! But I am certainly praying you make a huge difference in people's lives, my friend!

I really don't want to be like anyone else, except to be like Jesus – – but – – I find that after reading inspirational books, we pick up knowledge or truth that seems new to us and we can use it for our next sharing time. Thank you for your awesome post shared with us here at Tell me a Story.

Hmm…comparison is definitely an evil cousin of doubt and discouragement Ifeoma. i know I have fallen into that trap at times. I am learning to keep my eyes on Jesus and trust His leading. So great to hear from you today. I am always blessed by your insights. Your book looks beautiful! I wish you continued success. Have a wonderful week and may God richly bless you in all your endeavors!

Comparison is something I do all the time. I like to think it can sometimes be good. But have to admit mine is often not!

I learned many years ago as a young mother not to compare myself to others or my children to others. Life is life and sometimes the best thing to do is to play the cards dealt

It's hard not to compare ourselves and our journey with others, but at the same time, when we do compare ourselves to others we either frustrate and discourage ourselves or think we are better than others. Either one is not a good. We have to focus on being the person God made us to be. Thanks for sharing at Mom-to-Mom Mondays.

Thank you for sharing your insights on this important scripture. I marvel that God so thoroughly knows the things we struggle with and includes them in His Word.

That trap of comparison is awful and not something God ever intended for His children. Thanks for the reminder on Grace and Truth!
