Do not be jealous of others. The updated Bible study ‘Jealous or is it Envy; Does it Really Matter?’ is ready for you.
Scripture and thought for the day:
Jealousy and envy; not Christian behaviors
Galatians 5:19-21 The wrong things the sinful self does are clear: being sexually unfaithful, not being pure, taking part in sexual sins, 20 worshiping gods, doing witchcraft, hating, making trouble, being jealous, being angry, being selfish, making people angry with each other, causing divisions among people, 21 feeling envy, being drunk, having wild and wasteful parties, and doing other things like these.
I warn you now as I warned you before: Those who do these things will not inherit God’s kingdom. (NCV)
Living a Christian life requires changes in the way we think and act. Being jealous (jealousy) and feeling envy (being envious) of others are two of the behaviors we must be aware of.
In order to make changes, we first must acknowledge a need for change. Are you prone to being jealous or feeling envious of others? This Bible study addresses the issue to assist in making changes.
Galatians 5 lists the works of the flesh (verses 19-21) and the fruit of the Spirit (verses 22-23). The solution to jealousy and envy is Spirit-led self-control. Learn to use it.
I urge you to spend some time in prayerful Bible study…
Have a wonderful day; be blessed—♥ Tim.
