Being green with envy can be destructive. Envy seems to creep into our lives like a posionous vine. We must be watchful and love.
•Be content with what you have
“For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?”
~1 Corinthians 3:3
•List your blessings
“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.” ~Exodus 20:17
•Be happy for others good
“Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, there with to be content.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.” ~Philippians 4:11-12
Be not decieved. It lurks every second of the day….
