    Bible Verses to Help You Overcome the “Comparison Trap”

    Have you ever compared yourself to another person, maybe a celebrity, by thinking she’s much prettier and more beautiful than you? Most people have! Have you ever found yourself wishing that you were as beautiful as a model or a celebrity?

    Many people compare themselves to others by wishing they would look more beautiful or be as popular as someone else. The trap is that as long as you compare yourself to others, you’ll always feel like you don’t quite measure up. That can cause us to feel bad about ourselves if we measure our beauty only from outward appearance.

    Ezekiel 16:13-14 says:

    You were very beautiful and became a queen. Then you became famous among the nations, because you were so beautiful. Your beauty was perfect, because of the glory I gave you, says the Lord God.

    This Bible verse tells us that your beauty is made perfect by God’s glory, His character in you and His opinion of you. That is true beauty, not the outside beauty like makeup, clothes and hairstyles.

    So when you understand how precious you are in Jesus’ eyes, you won’t need to compare yourself to others anymore. So accept yourself the way you are, and listen to God’s opinion of you, not people’s.

    Here are a couple of Bible verses that confirm the things I have written about:

    I am the precious treasure in your heart. I will help you shine (2 Corinthians 4:7).

    When they measure themselves with themselves and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding and behave unwisely (2 Corinthians 10:12).

    The beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God is upon us (Psalm 90:17).
