During the “First World Problems” series we’ve been discussing what the Bible says about living a life of contentment and happiness.   Here’s a quick tip if you would like to do the opposite.


Yep.  It’s simple, effective, and it works every time.   Compare your stuff…your situation…your finances…your children…your abs…your spouses abs to someone else’s.

If after comparing yourself to others, you feel like your “stuff” is superior…it leads to PRIDE.

If you compare your “stuff” to others and wind up feeling inferior…it leads to ENVY.

Either way, you can be unhappy and discontented in one easy step:

Comparing = Discontentment + Unhappiness!

That’s a “First World Problem” all of us can do without.
