Envy pt 3

Definition

ENVY – a dissatisfaction with what God has given to you; a hatred of the “hand you’ve been dealt.”

Note: Envy and Pride (the next sin) are very closely related. There is a great deal of overlap in the next two weeks’ meditations.

Read Matthew 6:25-34

The game of comparisons and envy is never-ending. And there is always someone with more; there is always something better. You can choose to look down on what you have or to take your focus off of it and focus on God’s mission for you.

God, I take my focus off of all the things I ‘could have’ and resolve to walk in faith, content with your provision. Take my eyes off what others have; take my eyes off what I have. Instead, turn my eyes toward your glory and honor.
