The Comparison Trap - Sunday's lesson

Posted on

The lesson at youth on Sunday was the called “The Comparison Trap”. The speaker asked “Is there anyone you secretly enjoy seeing fall? What can you do to extend that person grace?” In small groups after the lesson, one of our teenagers shared this: “Sometimes I feel that way when I see people that cheat get caught and get in trouble. It never feels good when you try hard and someone else doesn't and cheats and they do better than you. Sometimes it feels good when they get called for it. Showing grace would be like offering to help them in that subject. It could also be like thinking back on times where you've made that mistake and cheated even in smaller things.” We learned from the speaker “that you can’t genuinely love someone whom you secretly hope will fail. There is no win in comparison. There’s never a finish line or sense of satisfaction.”
