Jealousy= to fear that something we possess will be taken from us.
Envy and jealousy cause you to have a victim's mentality.
When people become envious, they lose the ability to enjoy life.
Four words to remember to eliminate envy
1. Trust (vs. 3)
God doesn't make mistakes or play tricks on us.
2. Delight (vs. 4)
When you put God first, your heart's desires become more like His.
3. Commit (vs. 5)
“Who gets the credit?” shouldn't be our main concern.
Our main concern should be, “What is the end result.”
4. Wait (vs. 7)
Waiting is not a passive activity.
G. Cambell Morgan- waiting is:
