Do you or someone you know constantly try to measure up against someone or something? Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the their of joy.” I see it all the time:
Pastors trying to preach better than another - always seeking approval.
Coworkers who need constant reassurance that others see their efforts as more worthwhile and valuable than another’s.
Kids always trying to one-up the other.
The key, God says, is to focus on doing your best work and then focus on moving on, not on comparing your efforts with someone else.
