It is all too easy to get caught up in comparison culture: Do I have enough money? Am I respected enough by my peers? Am I beautiful? Am I worthy? It makes sense that we feel so downcast while looking through the comparison lens because “comparison is the thief of joy”. If you feel caught up in this cycle, our guest today is ready to reaffirm your worth and help you to put a halt to the comparison game through her specific life experience and prowess in the medical arena. Today’s Built Different Guest is Dermatologist Megan Allison talks about why our worth and our beauty is not merely “skin deep”. Megan begins by giving medical advice on how to be good stewards of our body by taking care of our skin, shares her personal battle against acne and how she overcame the physical and mental challenges that came with it, and lastly applied scriptural wisdom to the topic of beauty and comparison. Megan’s unique perspective as a physician assistant gives us deep encouragement to reorient our hearts towards God’s perspective of worth and beauty as she challenges our community to “remember our worth”, that it is “okay to ask for help”, and to “stop the comparison game”. Imagine how you could live differently if you knew the source of your true worth!
