Burn the Comparisons

July 1, 2013

in the generous life

One of the biggest reasons we’re not content with ourselves and our lives is that we compare ourselves to other people.  Leo Babauta

This quote comes from a great blog post entitled The Futility of Comparing Yourself to Others. (do read the whole thing)

I wanted to jump up and down and shout when I read it and then share it with everyone I know and then tattoo it on my forehead backwards so that I can see it in the mirror each morning.

We’re all in different seasons of life in totally different situations. Comparisons aren’t fair or healthy for anyone’s sanity.

Love your man and love your marriage. Focus on the good stuff and work faithfully in those areas where you struggle. While you’re at it, burn the comparisons.

Seth’s Blog: Thinking About Money Some very wise words about attitudes and action concerning money.


The Generous Husband: What Defending Marriage Should Mean “On a larger scale, why is the church putting more time, energy, and money into combating “gay marriage” than it puts into combating porn, adultery, and domestic violence? These other things are more common in society, they directly harm millions of marriages, and they are far likely to be happening in the average church.”
