The 12th verse of the 10th chapter of Paul's Second Letter to the church in Corinth says,
We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. (NIV)
Oh, don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant! (NLT)
We won't dare compare ourselves with those who think so much of themselves. But they are foolish to compare themselves with themselves. (CEV)
I am not calling you stupid, i really can't do that, but he who has an ear let him hear let him hear what Paul is saying.
The internet, facebook, television create this false hierarchy of success and unfortunately at times I'm stupid enough to feel bad because on facebook my friend is pregnant and I'm single, I'm stupid enough at times to feel sad because I'm driving an '06 Corolla and Meredith Grey has a 2011 mini cooper. Sometimes I'm stupid enough to get online and window shop and end up sad and discontent because of a yardstick that is false and unrealistic.
So yeah this isn't about you,
it's mii.I have my stupid moments.
Times when I spend money
I don't have on things
I don't need because of what people who
I don't know have.
this isn't about you.
