Achieve Your Dream Part 3 — The Temptation of Comparison

Comparison is a temptation. Falling for it can sabotage your confidence and sideline your dreams faster than boiling water melts a sugar cube.

There is no pretense with a horse—they’re direct and only say what they mean.  Horses don’t care if your eyebrows are plucked, if the crease in your jeans isn’t sharp, if your boots are hand-me-downs, or if you missed a juicy promotion.

The Wrongness of Worry for Christians

Most Christians agree that adultery is wrong. God’s beef against His people in the Old Testament was serial spiritual adultery, worshipping other Gods, disobedience, and breaking covenant. We are blessed by the Holy Spirit, yet continue to worship the idol of worry. In the late 1970s, I bought a Sherman on the Mount greeting card. I cut it in half,
