But they, measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. (II Corinthians 10:11b)
Don’t get caught in the comparison trap. You are unique and your business is to be the best “you” possible, for God’s glory. Don’t let those who are thinner discourage you and cause you to give up.
And don’t compare yourselves with heavier folks, either. You might decide that since you aren’t that bad yet, you don’t have to work at being healthier.
Remember, it’s not about looks, anyway. It’s about taking care of our bodies so we can serve the Lord longer and more effectively.
