Comparison Can Lead to Self-Deception
Wes McAdams   -  

When the church is what the church is supposed to be, we see others at their worst. We see  them when they are struggling and when they have failed. We are called to help them and restore them. However, seeing others struggling with sin can create a comparison problem for us. We may think that we are too good to help them, or that we are better than them in some way. When we see someone weak and struggling, we must keep watch on ourselves, lest we also be tempted. (Scripture: Galations 6:1-5)
