Getting Over Envy
Proverbs 14:30: “A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.” Envy causes us to compare and compete with others in an unhealthy way. It brings arrogance when we’re winning and discouragement when we’re not. It robs us of contentment and causes us to feel like—as an ancient king put it—we’re chasing after the wind. But envy doesn’t have to be the boss.
