Envy is a Green Eyed Monster


When I see or hear the word jealous, I have a vision in my head of a green eyed monster. Not a pretty picture either.

But in our world today, it's quite common to read "I'm so jealous" in a comment after a friend writes something good that happened in her life in a Facebook post. While I realize this may be a common idiom of the times in which we live and certainly not meant to be hurtful, I can't help but have that vision in my head.

My good friend Jamie posted a photo of her young daughter after a tennis match. She just won her match but her friend lost hers.  I loved this photo Jamie captured of the two friends. Marybeth won but is consoling her friend who lost. No gloating; just kindness.

I love this Scripture:
"A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones." Proverbs 14:30 (NIV)

To continue reading, please link over to Laced with Grace.

Blessings and love,

Beautiful picture indeed...how awesome if we have the minds and hearts of a child.! Not only jealousy is destructive but I also imagine "pride" always having company with it. Now those are scary monsters! Thank you sister for cheering me up and encouraging me. You're like that girl who knows how to love unconditionally. Have a great weekend and God bless.

" ... just kindness." Now there's a bottom line for everything we do or hope to do!
