Comparison is one of our innate motives. Through it, we could understand more in-depth of ourselves. With the heart of appreciation, we may be surprised by the variety of the Lord’s creation. Yet, the primitive innate motive had been stained by our sinful nature. Jealousy, anger, and bitterness are usually diffused in them. That’s why “friendship does matter” has long been highlighted in different kinds of competition. A bible story reminds us of our dark side in comparison. “The Lord accepted Abel and his gift, but he did not accept Cain and his gift. It made Cain very angry, and he looked dejected. – Genesis 4:4-5.” Finally, Cain killed Abel. It is worth noting that the Lord’s preference is not merely made on the gifts but the person first. In other words, the Lord has not much concern for what we have accomplished; he concerns more with our hearts. Comparison is neutral on its own, but evil is waiting for us if we just aim at beating others rather than a larger goal to achieve.
