UNPROFITABLE COMPARISON

God is no respecter of persons. If you are a Christian what He designed in your Hypostatic Chip is not inferior to what He designed in another believer’s Hypostatic Chip.

As it is written: “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3 NKJV)

 Unlike in athletics the race to heaven is highly individualized. You will be judged not according to the accomplishments of others but according to your faithfulness in fulfilling your specific assignment. 

Consequently, the most foolish thing to do in the race to heaven is to desire another’s position. There is nothing that you need to discover yourself that God has not already given you. You should not be asking God what He wants you to do in this life. It’s already inside of you. Discover it and diligently pursue it.

If you look at things from the outside you can never be happy in this life. If you compare yourself to others you will spend your lifetime chasing shadows.  The reason you indulge in comparing yourself with others is because you don’t know who you are. When you compare yourself with your neighbour you put a limitation over your head – you may not get what is yours.

What you think about most of the time has the power to influence your behavior. Who you think about most of the time has the capacity to impact your life positively or negatively.

The three musketeers of human comparison are power, money and pleasure. In His earthly life Jesus dealt with them. We should therefore follow His example.

It’s written: “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. (Philippians 2:5-8 NKJV)
