Who Wins in Comparison?

Comparison Trap


Ever woken up and thought to yourself “I wish I could be a little more like x”?

Or seen something on TV and thought “I wish I looked a little more like y“?

It's a trap many of us fall into. Media presents us with an unending parade of seemingly “perfect people”. But the comparison trap can quickly go deeper, we start looking at those around us at work, or at school. We start looking at other people's boyfriends, spouses or children and wishing that just maybe we could have something a little closer to what they have.

Starting this weekend in Barrie we begin a brand new series with Andy Stanley where we'll learn the true dangers of falling into the comparison trap.

In Orillia, we wrap up Your Big Moment. If you made a submission for “Your Big Screen Moment” don't be late! This weekend it's showtime!

The Comparison Trap – Part 1 – The Land of ER | Andy Stanley

We've all heard of a win-win outcome. But as Andy Stanley points out in this message, we are daily engaging in a lose-lose activity and we may not even realize how destructive it is. Being rich-er or smart-er or funny-er may feel like a short-term win, but for ourselves, our families, and our marriages, comparison is a game with no winners.

Your Big Moment – Part 5 – Unstoppable Surrender | Carey Nieuwhof

God is the God who consistently uses evil to surprisingly serve a higher good. From Joseph, to Esther, to the cross, to the early church – a pattern emerges. If God is active in all of human history, you can choose which side you’re on. It won’t change the ultimate outcome, but it might change yours. So why not surrender?
