Comparison Trap

Saturdays-Feb. 8, 15, 22

Thursdays-Feb. 13, 20, 27

Session 1- Land of ER

​​

We've all heard of a win-win outcome. But as Andy Stanley points out in this message, we are daily engaging in a lose-lose activity and we may not even realize how destructive it is. Being rich-er or smart-er or funny-er may feel like a short-term win, but for ourselves, our families, and our marriages, comparison is a game with no winners.

Session 2-Looking Around

​​

God is the creator of the universe. He's big and smart and powerful. He orchestrates time and everything that happens in it. And he has told us to call him. . .Dad? In this message, Andy Stanley unpacks what being part of God's family can mean for our self-assurance. God's opinion of us may provide something we haven't yet found comparing ourselves to others.

Session 3-Two Bags Full

​​

Comparison is being caught in the trap of constantly asking, "Does she have more than me? Are they better off? Is he smarter, funnier, richer?" We preoccupy ourselves with these questions, but God has a better plan. In this message, Andy uses a familiar parable to illustrate the question God would have us ask-a question that will free us from the comparison trap once and for all.
