Contentment versus Comparison
One of our biggest challenges to contentment is comparison.
Comparison stinks! It robs you of your joy and gratitude! It makes you less thankful.
But maybe worse – Comparison stops us from being generous
Comparison leads to discontentment leads to selfishness
Do we really know what it means to be in need?
Your glass is fuller then you think.
we are more likely to compare our situation with the millionaires in this world than the millions that are in poverty.
Nearly 1 out of every 10 people in the world lives below the international poverty line. That’s 689 million
people struggling to survive on less than $1.90 a day.
And nearly 2 billion people, or 26.2% of the world’s population, live on less than $3.20 a day.
Hebrews 13:16 - “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to
Luke 12:33-34 - “Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do
not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth
destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
