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.

2 Corinthians 10:12

In this age of relentless image projection and self-promotion via social media, the compulsion to compare ourselves with ourselves and with others is virtually irresistible, especially amongst young people. This Bible verse reminds us of what even modern experts are now telling us – that such comparison is not healthy or wise and can indeed be destructive. Such comparisons do not help us truly understand and appreciate the person we are before others, but especially before God.
