It is all too easy for me to become envious. When I see what I might deem an unfair distribution of gifts, or wealth or influence any myriad of other things that I might want, the enemy has set a trap for me. If I let these things settle in my heart, I have sinned.
You alone distribute gifts among all mankind. You also created all mankind in Your image and love each eternal soul equally. You have granted each of us equal access to an unbelievable gift of salvation.
Whether fully functional or handicapped…whether fawned over or rejected, rich and powerful or humble and struggling, we are all created in Your image and loved beyond imagination.
There should be no envy…just rejoicing at Your goodness. Thank You!
Scripture: “I was envious of the arrogant as I saw the prosperity of the wicked…Until I entered the sanctuary of God; then I perceived their end.” Psalms 73:3; 17
