The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel. (Steven Furtick, pastor)

One of life’s personal dangers is comparing ourselves with others. As Furtick suggests, we see only the strong public images of those we admire, knowing little, if anything, about their everyday struggles. They are probably not much different from us. So, let’s be careful to compare ourselves only to God’s standard to become all that He intended us to be.

Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. (2 Timothy 2:15)
