Rhythms of Grace – Weekly Devotional


Matthew 7:12 NET “In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you, for this fulfills the law and the prophets.”

Lets focus our attention on how to harness the power of healthy comparison so we can kill toxic comparison in our lives.

Our focus verse is an important call to action, saying in Matthew 7:12:

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”

When our insecurity gets triggered, we feel left out, overlooked, less than, and discouraged. But, what if we turned those feelings on their head to commit ourselves to making sure others don’t feel that way because of our actions? What if we made an intentional effort to include, celebrate, encourage, and affirm people when we’re feeling left out, overlooked, discouraged, and not good enough? This is what our verse is leading us to do because;

  • killing comparison requires being for others what we wish others would be for us.
  • killing comparison requires treating people the way you would like to be treated.
