How Green Is My Grass?

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Romans 12:15
Comparison is a tool of the devil. Comparing your finances to others, your gifting to others, your job to others, your house or your car among other things,  is not from God. Comparison leads to envy and envy can lead to discontent and hate for another. This is not what God wants for His children.

Instead God wants us to be happy for another's successes and new 'toys' in their closet so to speak. We are not to wish we were someone else or thinking the other person has it so much better. This is definitely wrong thinking and requires you to get your mind renewed. How do you renew your mind? With the word of God. Daily search the scriptures and think good and positive thoughts. This type of thinking will eventually cause you to not be negative and concerned so much with others. 

Can you do it? Start today and thank the Lord for where you are in life. Do not envy another's position in life, their education or school they attended, or the job title they have. Be  grateful as God has you just where He wants you . Rejoice!

PRAYER: I am thankful Lord for so many things. Most of all for the gift of life and freedom. Help me not lose sight of all the things you do for me and keep me from coveting others life or things. In Jesus' name. Amen.
