Feeling jealous? Jealous can feel pretty yucky and be really ugly, but this is not all! Jealousy is sin against God that needs to be gotten rid of!
Imagine how much it must grieve God’s heart when instead of being thankful for His love and goodness and endless blessings we are envious of others and what they have. And oh how it must hurt His heart when we are so consumed with ourselves and our feelings of bitterness, self-pity, discontentment, and jealousy that we are unable to truly love Him with all our hearts and love others as He commands us.
Feeling jealous? Turn from your sins to Jesus and choose love for God and others and praise and thanksgiving to God instead! Hallelujah AMEN!
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:19-23 NKJV
