Comparison can bring out ugliness in our hearts. Is there a way to notice and genuinely appreciate the gifts and blessings God has given to those around us without becoming jealous or resentful? Kay Wills Wyma says yes. She joins Susie to talk about how to get free from the sin of comparison and embrace the circumstances God has given you.

Kay says the sin of comparison goes all the way back to the garden. The serpent pointed out a tree that Adam and Eve had probably overlooked – the one tree they weren’t allowed to eat from. However, “once they looked, they couldn’t stop looking at themselves. It’s a sneaky thing that is used so often – it’s insidious and robs joy and peace out of our lives. But it doesn’t have to.”

Susie and Kay explore the following topics:

• The connection between comparison and social media.

• What it looks like when parents compare and compete.

• How men and women compete differently.

• Why so many millennials are experiencing a “quarter-life crisis.”

• How to use “control-alt-delete” to change your thought patterns.

• What it means for jealousy to be the “vehicle” that brings us from comparison to idolatry.

Kay shares what she’s learned.

“Try in the moment to gain perspective – you know the One who is going to take care of you. We are absolutely accepted and loved by our Creator. The truth is so rich – His truth helps anybody, anywhere, any day. To be able to tap into the source – what a gift. And you’ve got it.”
