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

Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 4:1-7 | Preacher: Davis Lacey | Series: Sovereign Through the Shutdown | 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
