Comparing Ourselves to Others

A couple purchased a home in upper Maine from two elderly sisters. With winter approaching, the wife was concerned about the house’s lack of insulation. “If they could live here all those years, so can we!” her husband confidently declared.

One night, the temperature plunged to below zero, and they awoke to find interior walls covered with frost. The husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up.

“For the past 30 years,” he muttered, “they’ve gone to Florida for the winter.” When we compare ourselves to others, it's easy to develop a false sense of self-assurance.

2 Corinthians 10:12 New International Version (NIV)

12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.

I love you all,




** Next Sunday evening, September 29th, we will have a fellowship to learn more about our life groups. We will be discussing how the groups will be implemented and used to benefit all of our church family. Our discussion will be followed by a cook-out. You may bring a dessert. Please come and join in on the fun!

** Please let the office know your college student’s address so that we can send them some fall treats.




If you are visiting us today, we are honored you chose us. We hope that today’s time together will help deepen your relationship with God and widen your circle of friends.

We are a church family who seeks to follow Jesus and be true to the Bible.

Please stay around after our assembly so that we might get to know you better. 

Thank you again for worshipping with us today.
