Quit Comparing

Nine times out of ten, discontent and envy invade your heart because you are oh so busy looking and salivating at your neighbor’s bowl instead of eating what’s in your own bowl.

“You must not covet your neighbor’s house. You must not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey, or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.” — Exodus 20:17, NLT

Quit the comparison the game.

Be grateful for what you have.

Give careful thought to that upon which you allow your eyes to dwell because your heart will likely follow your eyes. When you remain fixated on another person’s goods, there’s no room in your heart for what’s on your own plate.

Learn to live your own life.

Stop attempting to live theirs.
