Galatians 6:4 ” Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else.”

Comparing ourselves to someone else will never turn out well. We will either determine that we are better than them , which gives way to boastful pride…or that we are shamefully worse, wicked, and unworthy…which can only lead to discouragement and even covetousness. We are to examine ourselves as individuals before God, rather than drawing comparisons (good or bad) from other’s…in II Corinthians 13:5, that’s called testing ourselves…where we are approved on our own merit, faith, actions, and good works by God.
