Jealous – Envious or Both?


Message in the picture:

“Jealousy – Love knows neither envy nor jealousy. She knows how to be silent. She is full of trust, full of hope, full of patient endurance.” from 1 Corinthians 13:4 and 7 (WEY)


Scripture for the day:

James 4:1-3 Amplified Bible (AMP) What leads to strife (discord and feuds) and how do conflicts (quarrels and fightings) originate among you? Do they not arise from your sensual desires that are ever warring in your bodily members? 2 You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your desires go unfulfilled; [so] you become murderers. [To hate is to murder as far as your hearts are concerned.] You burn with envy and anger and are not able to obtain [the gratification, the contentment, and the happiness that you seek], so you fight and war. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3 [Or] you do ask [God for them] and yet fail to receive, because you ask with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. Your intention is [when you get what you desire] to spend it in sensual pleasures.


Thought for the day:

Anger is cruel and destructive, but it is nothing compared to jealousy {Proverbs 27:4 Good News Bible (GNB)}. Is there anyone among you who is truly wise and understanding? Then he should show his wisdom by living right. He should do good things without being proud. A wise person does not brag. But if you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to brag. Your bragging is a lie that hides the truth. That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil.

Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there will be confusion and every kind of evil. But the wisdom that comes from God is like this: First, it is pure. Then it is also peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help those who are troubled and to do good for others. This wisdom is always fair and honest. When people work for peace in a peaceful way, they receive the good result of their right living {James 3:13-18 International Children’s Bible (ICB)}. Be blessed my friends and use self-control to subdue jealousy—Tim.
