A Collect to Avoid Fruitless Comparison

Heavenly Father, whose love is given freely to all, keep us from fruitless comparison and envy, that we would not fall prey to jealous desires, but would hear your call and your encouragement and discover the joys you have set in store for us in your will, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit live in perfect union. Amen. ” ‘These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.’” – Matthew 20:12
