From Granger Community Church in Granger, IN
It’s all too easy to compare our messy reality to someone else’s perfect snapshot—just pick up your phone. Our imperfect homes, families, careers and relationships usually don’t match up to the absurd standards we’ve photoshopped in our minds. And not only is it exhausting trying to keep up with the Jones’—it’s dangerous. There’s no finish line or sense of satisfaction if you’re always pushing yourself to meet a standard that doesn’t really exist. And how can we truly learn to love our neighbors and our friends, if we secretly envy what they have and gloat over their failures? How can we experience true joy and satisfaction, if we’re racking up debt to keep pace with someone else?
