How big of a salary bump is “too big to turn down?”

I recently started applying to new jobs mostly to find my market value to bring back to my current firm in support of a compensation increase request. I really love my team and have 4 YOE with this firm. I was presented with an offer from a competitor at a 46% increase in salary. Is there any merit in bringing this offer back to my current employer and asking them to match? Or will I just get laughed out of the room?
