Comparing Ourselves with Others is Not Wise!
II Corinthians 10:11-16

Here is a simple study of just a few verses that if we read slowly... then they make total sense!

11: Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent,
such will we be also in deed when we are present. 12: For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that
commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing
themselves among themselves, are not wise. 13: But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of
the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you. 14: For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you:
for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ: 15: Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men's labours; but having
hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule
abundantly, 16: To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's line
of things made ready to our hand.
