Envy Destroys You

Do you ever get jealous of someone? When we perceive another person we typically pick apart their weakest points or only consider the strengths that they put on display. We don’t usually see who they are when no one is around or what kinds of inner struggles they might have.

Honestly, I think most people who we think we know we really don’t. There is pain that many people tend to keep to themselves & or failures that they don’t share. Every single person has something they aren’t proud of or something they wouldn’t like to admit. Acknowledge that people may have been presented difficult obstacles to maneuver in their lives & or internal roadblocks that keep them from who they are. How we see someone is often not who they truly are.

In order to minimize envy, become more grateful for who you were created to be. & love others for how God shaped them to be. Look to God to help you enhance gratitude in your life. Sometimes you are better than who you were yesterday and that is who you should always aim to be.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful…”
