Is it possible not to get caught up in comparing yourself to others and all the destructive feelings that come with such comparisons? With the barrage of influences (books, movies, social media, friends, expectations, etc.) that surround us, and from which we cannot escape, is it possible to not have your sense of worth and identity be shaped by those influences in harmful ways? Can a person truly learn to accept themselves and others as imperfect yet valuable, not be overly affected by criticisms or disappointments that are part of life, and conquer that inner voice that whispers, “not good enough?”
Kent Adrian says in IDENTITY DISCOVERY that it is not only possible to escape the comparison and expectations game, but that we were created by God for something far greater and better than playing such a game. Kent details how the gospel of Jesus Christ---a message about who God is and what He has done---is the weapon that allows us to build a strong sense of security about who we are. Discover your God-intended security!
