You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 1 Corinthians 3:3
What makes people get jealous? First, it is not an emotion from God so let's get that straight. But most of us have felt it at one time or another if we are honest. It is not listed as a 'fruit' of the Spirit so how do you nip this monster in the bud?
Possessions, talents, feeling left out, money, being in the loop, family issues, appearance, comparison. It is not good. Why do we let it occur? Mostly if you let your mind dwell on negative you can conjure up so many things that are not real. Satan loves it when we get jealous. From there he might have you say or do something you regret terribly and even ruin a relationship.
PRAYER: Oh dear Lord I want to not even entertain jealousy in my life. Forgive me when I have let it rear its' ugly head. Help me replace it with praise. In Jesus' name. Amen.
