Freedom from the Comparison Trap (1 Corinthians 4:1-7)

Preacher:
Passage: 1 Corinthians 4:1-7

1 Corinthians 4:1-7 teaches us the pathway to freedom from the "comparison trap:" look LESS to OTHERS, look LESS to SELF, and look MORE to JESUS.

Comparison to OTHERS

  • Small in SUBSTANCE (doesn't fill)
  • Small in DURATION (doesn't last)
  • Small in EFFECT (doesn't satisfy)

Comparison to SELF

  • Small in SUBSTANCE (doesn't fill)
  • Small in DURATION (doesn't last)
  • Small in EFFECT (doesn't satisfy)

But when we look to Jesus, we receive a verdict which is:

Comparison to OTHERS

  • LARGE in SUBSTANCE
  • LARGE in DURATION
  • LARGE in EFFECT
