Comparison is said to be “an act of violence against oneself.” It is the killer of joy and peace – and of the safe place to simply “be.” Comparison shifts focus across the room to another, rather than to the cross – to the Christ who calls us and equips us. It affects us individually and affects our children, thus significantly impacting our families in potentially destructive ways. Join our conversation in helping us to recognize the culprit of comparison and all it steals from us and our families. To recognize the essential need to “name it and tame it.” Together we will discuss the need to press in and evaluate our own mindset, and implement practices to contain this culprit by proclaiming Biblical truth – keeping our eyes on HIM as we recognize the true meaning of “success” is faithfulness. Faithful to who and what He has created and called us to be.
