1 Samuel 8:20 KJV
That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
1 Timothy 6:6 KJV
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
We become discontent with our lot in life when we compare ourselves with others. You cannot be the best you can be when your energy is focused on trying to be like someone else. There will always be someone with a quality you don’t have. “The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel” (Steven Furtick).
