Worrying Less About Unimportant Temporary Things
“Keeping up with the Joneses” is an expression that has to do with how you think you’re measuring up (and “keeping up”) with the people around you. It has to do with comparison.
Let’s be honest. Most of us do it.
We look at the people around us and often measure our worth and “success” based on how we compare with other people’s homes, cars, gadgets, grades, relationships, social media status, and even spiritual maturity!
We know it’s not a good idea, but we keep… on… doing it—even though it kills our joy and wrecks our priorities.
On January 7th at Westminster we started a 3-part series to explore this unhealthy phenomena and what to do about it. It’s called Keeping up with the Joneses: Why it ruins your joy, wrecks your priorities (and what to do about it). The apostle Paul gives enduring advice that still holds true today.
If you take this teaching seriously we think it will result in a less anxious, more confident, and more joyful you.
Part 1 is called “Worrying less about unimportant temporary things.” Listen in!
