Comparing Black People and White People and Chinese People

Comparing yourself to others is a distraction that usually leads to an alternating mixture of pride and depression.

Comparing yourself to the Word of God keeps you focused and gives you hope in the fear of the Lord.

This applies to you, your family, your church, your “people”, your nationality, your nation, etc…

Never let the devil get you into a whirlwind of comparison. It’s not wise. Stay focused on the Word of God and produce fruit.

2 Corinthians 10
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.

Although I understand the need to help our people maximize our potential and express the fullness of what God has called us to be… I grow weary of hearing about “black people need to do this”, “white people need to do that”, “‘Merica needs to do this because the Chinese are doing that.”

When you look at the word of God, you see the problem AND you can see the solution. When you constantly compare yourself with others, you see the problem and you see OTHER problems. That only compounds the problems.

No one will ever maximize who they are created by God to be – or ever truly have unity with others – while they are too busy comparing themselves to others. We are all made in the image of God, so focus on Him and eventually you will learn to be like Him.

You Become Like What You Behold

2 Corinthians 3
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
