The temptation to compare is as near as your next chat with a friend, trip to the store, or check-in on social media. And whether you come out on top or come up lacking, there is simply no win in comparison. It's a trap.

OTHER SERIES WITH Andy Stanley
What Is Jesus' Take on Politics?
Your favorite candidate will win or lose based on how our country votes this November. However, the church will win or lose based on our behavior between now and then. Watch Talking Points, Part 1: What Is Jesus' Take On Politics? with Andy Stanley.

How Christians Should Approach Politics
Our political views are shaped by a number of variables: our backgrounds, education, and personal experiences to name a few. It’s easy to feel like our view is the right one, but the person beside you is more precious to God than your political view.

 What Is The Role of the Church in Politics?
The unity and diversity of the early church shocked and intrigued the ancient world. Ours should as well.

The details of the Christmas story can seem unbelievable. So now, thousands of years after shepherds watched their flocks and wise men followed a star, you may be asking, "Who needs Christmas?"

Well, as it turns out, we all do. In this 3-part series, Andy Stanley shows us that the world needed Christmas, God needed Christmas, and we still need Christmas—but maybe not for the reason you think.

You can fix a dent in your car and it will look as good as new. You can upgrade a shattered phone and never think twice about the older model.

But when it comes to personal problems—relational, financial, professional, or otherwise—there are no quick fixes or fresh starts. The memories, the lost potential, the hurt and regret . . . they linger.
If only you could have seen them coming. If only you could have avoided them.

Well, you can. In this four-part series, Andy Stanley reveals one simple principle—taken from a 2,000-year-old parable—that will predict your future so you can change it before it’s too late.

Open mouth. Insert foot. Ever said something you wish you could take back? Of course you have. We all have. Even if what you said was true, those words may have cost you your job, your reputation, or even a relationship. Conversations don't come with backspace buttons, so how do we prevent our big mouths from getting us in big trouble next time? Andy Stanley shares the secret in this 4-part study.

What do you want? Seriously…what do you want? Did you know you’ll never get what you really want until you discover what you really value? In this 4-part study, Andy Stanley reveals how to get what you really want.
Lurking in the shadows of what we want is what we value. You’ll never get what you really want until you discover what you really value. Jesus challenged all of our assumptions about what is valuable and what is not. He pointed us toward a different kind of wanting. If you follow him, you’ll pursue what is of greatest value.

We all have wants. Life can feel like a constant pursuit of those wants. We want to do what we want to do. We want constant pleasure. And we want what we want now. But actually getting what we want can be tricky . . . and even dangerous. It usually leaves us wanting more. If what we want leads to a cycle of wanting more and more, maybe we want the wrong things. So, what do you want?

We all have frameworks that help us make sense out of life. For many of us, that framework is religion.

But frameworks fail. Life happens. And you may be left wondering . . . or maybe even wandering away from faith entirely.

In this 3-part series, Andy Stanley reframes faith—not around the people, institutions, and religious rules that may have caused us to wander, but instead around Jesus and the wonder of his love.

As children, many of us received a leather-bound book full of long words and difficult names we couldn’t pronounce. We were told everything in it was true and we should do our best to abide by its teachings.

Then we grew up.

What was oh-so-simple then is . . . well, it’s not simple. Perhaps that’s because we were taught Bible stories but not the story of the Bible. Big difference. In this 4-part series, Andy Stanley gives us a way to approach the Bible that begins with something other than “in the beginning . . .”

Author and pastor Andy Stanley is convinced that most of us are richer than we believe. But we might think, rich is the other guy. Rich is having more that we currently have. If that's the case, we can be rich and not know or feel it. We can be rich and not act like it. And that is a problem. In this four-session small group study, Andy encourages us to not just BE rich, but he helps us learn to be GOOD at it!

Everything has a starting point-your life, your relationships, your education, your career.

Sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point as well. For some of us, our faith journeys began in childhood as a set of beliefs handed to us by a parent, teacher, or pastor. Maybe you developed a framework of faith based on personal experience. Or maybe you had not faith at all. Too often, a faith formed in childhood isn't strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life.

But what if you could find a new starting point for faith?
