ODM TOPIC: THE WORST VIRUS: COMPARING YOURSELF TO THEM!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: 2 CORINTHIANS 10: 10-18
10 For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.
11 Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present.
12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.
14 For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:
15 Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men’s labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,
16 To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand.
17 But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.

Today’s scripture, Vs. 12 says: “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” Did you get that? As 2020 ends, NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF TO ANYONE! Refuse to envy them! Accept yourself for who you are! Accept that there are things that are beyond your control. Accept the things you cannot change! Stop wishing you were like others! Jordan Peterson said: “Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today.” Change the object of comparison to yourself. the urge to compare is too strong to ignore, measure yourself against yourself because God has different CALENDARS for different people! Life is like an exam in which we all have different question papers! Once you COPY others, you FAIL.
The more you desperately want to be like someone else or others, the more unworthy you feel! The more you desperately want to be happier, the lonelier you become, despite the awesome people surrounding you. The key to the good life you really need is refusing to dwell on the negative about yourself! Those you are envying are also fighting their battles and carrying their crosses. COMPETE WITH YOURSELF! As 2020 ends, declare daily things like, “| want to be better than I was yesterday” and your mind will start presenting you with new information, derived firom your previously hidden self, to aid you in your new pursuit to become a better YOU! Coronavirus is deadly; but really the worst virus is comparing yourself to others! If you have been infected with the COMPARISON VIRUS (I call it, “COMPARIVID-19” VIRUS), quickly go to an isolation center (alone with God) and practice social distancing (Stop seeing/looking at others because THERE WILL BE SOMEONE WHO IS AHEAD OF YOU IN LIFE)! You don’t grow green grass by focusing on your neighbor’s garden; you do it by nurturing your own! Learn and move on from that deadly virus “COMPARIVID – 19.” I shall see you at the top! Amen!
