Comparisons are a part of life, probably from when we are sill young kids (she walked at 9 months but he didn’t walk until 14 months!), but this worship leader podcast explores whether comparing yourself to others, either in your team or in other churches, is helpful.
Join the pod team as they discuss comparisons in worship leading, whether they are good or bad, helpful or not.
Thing is, if you compare yourself to others all the time, it is pretty much NEVER good. If someone else is better then you at singing, playing or leading, you feel discouraged. If you are better than someone else, you feel prideful. Either way, we don’t believe that God is glorified in either of these!
So how you do face the inevitable comparisons, because even if you don’t do this, someone else will for sure, saying things like, “I think you’re a better worship leader than so and so.”
You cannot escape it, so this week the pod team discuss how you can deal with the odious comparisons that will follow you no matter what. What is a godly response, and how can we protect ourselves from the damage and jealousy that this sort of behaviour inevitably causes?
