Feelings are really powerful things. When I get angry, it’s difficult for me not to shout. But Proverbs 27:4 (http://bit.ly/2PEKpox) tells us that there is an even more powerful feeling than anger, and that’s jealousy. When you see someone else getting the things that you really want, that can drive you crazy. The problem with that feeling of jealousy is that there’s no release. It can lead us to feelings of anger and hatred for other people.
So how do you deal with jealousy before it makes you nasty? You need to take that feeling to Jesus, and remember that you’re complete in him. No amount of stuff that other people have can make you whole, only Jesus.
