22 Bible Verses about Comparisons
Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.2 Corinthians 10:12
But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor.Galatians 6:4
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.Romans 12:2
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.Philippians 2:3
For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.Galatians 1:10
For who knows a person’s thoughts except for the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.1 Corinthians 2:11
Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”Hebrews 13:5
Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”1 Peter 5:5
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.1 Thessalonians 5:13
But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.Galatians 6:4-5
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.Romans 12:3
In all things, I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’Acts 20:35
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.Galatians 2:20
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.1 John 2:15
For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.James 3:16
Though if I should wish to boast, I would not be a fool, for I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain from it, so that no one may think more of me than he sees in me or hears from me. So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.2 Corinthians 12:6-10
Judge not, that you be not judged.Matthew 7:1
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.Proverbs 3:5-6
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.Psalm 139:14
It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.Jude 1:19
And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.Romans 14:12
Where my Inspiration Comes From
Grace Community Church in New Market, TN is where we go to church. This week’s sermon linked below is what gave me the inspiration to write on what the Bible says about comparisons. This clip is Pastor Josh Moore. He is one of the most anointed pastors my husband and I have had the pleasure of listening to. He’s not afraid to boldly share the word of God and hit on the hard topics like some mainstream preachers are. If you want to live a life right unto God, you need a preacher who isn’t afraid to preach on sin. I highly recommend you subscribe to their Youtube channel to be notified when new sermons are posted.
Worthy: Finding Yourself in a World Expecting Someone Else
Here’s a book I’m looking forward to reading based on the description I think we could all use this. If you’ve read it, I’d love to know what you think!
In Worthy, college professor Melanie Springer Mock sifts through the shape and weight of expectations that press Christians into cultural molds rather than God’s image. By plumbing Scripture and critiquing the ten-billion-dollar-a-year self-improvement industry, Mock offers life-giving reminders that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Set free from the anxiety to conform to others’ expectations, we are liberated to become who God has created us to be. If you’re worn out from worrying that you’ve missed God’s One Big Calling, and if you’re tired of trying to fit yourself into some cookie-cutter Christian mold, step away from the expectations and toward God’s heart.
