Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always
protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

From the online dictionary.com,
“to envy is to feel resentful and unhappy because someone else possesses, or has achieved, what one wishes oneself to possess, or to have achieved.”
Envy left untreated can destroy friendships, families, lead to war…
and ultimately will destroy the physical and spiritual life of the carrier.
Not to mention the spread of the disease to the next victims.
Proverbs 14:30 says, “A tranquil heart is life to the body, but
ENVY is ROTTENESS to the BONES”
It grows from discontentment and pride…, “why not me”,
To ENVY, “why you”….
It will distort the truth causing “confusion” in the heart…
to “justify” rotten actions…
To protect ourselves from ENVY,
we must strive keep discontentment and pride out of our heart
by living with a Heart filled with LOVE..a TRANQUIL HEART!
To have this kind of heart, we must first humble ourselves to see the Truth… understanding that this life is but for a moment
and without the grace of God we are without hope…
If we accept God’s Grace by following Him with sincere faith…
we should then be filled with GRATITUDE at the great gift we are given!
With gratitude then we will ask “WHY ME?” …an undeserving sinner…
”WHY NOT YOU?”…God’s grace is offered to all,
…resulting in life
from a heart filled with LOVE…
a TRANQUIL HEART
