A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot. ~Proverbs 14:30
If we look there is always something to be jealous about. He has a better job. She doesn’t need to work at all. Her husband is more understanding. His family lives nearby. Her mom is still alive.
We need to be thankful for what we have and where God has placed us. We may not always have everything we want, but have you ever thought maybe it’s better that way? You can turn all of the above statements around. For example, he may have a better job, but how many hours does he work? Praise God for what you already have.
Let go of any jealousy and let God bless you in unique ways.
