The Comparison Danger
(Apples to Oranges)
By: Carlita A. Earl
Wow, how deep an allurement this can be
The subtle pull and shift that feeds our inner need to intensely compare
our lives and things with such superior scrutiny.
We attribute loyalty to our categories of “greater than or less than” scales-tipping
back and forth, a similarity or difference.
Yet it fails to tell the truth of what matters and is real like value, worth and significance.
What really lies beneath all this
This dangerous game of comparison picks
That really breeds discontentment, jealousy and kills our lives of its purpose and usefulness.
The truth of the matter is its unproductive-like comparing apples to oranges-the argument is absolutely fruitless.
So views must shift
Opinionated comparisons crumble and submit
To the One who values and embraces us all with love and care
We must avoid the dangers of comparison-for we are all loved by the One
Who is truly beyond all compare!
