I heard a news regarding someone in my birth place and my later actions without doubt showed signs of envy. I tried to justify my thoughts but there's no going around it. The Bible said get rid of it (envy). As i tried to research about it, i learned that our Lord Jesus Christ was delivered by Jewish leaders to be crucified because of envy. King Saul envied David was another example. Cain envied Abel.
What is the antidote for envy ? I tried to look for the opposite of envy in the dictionary and i did not find any . Envy is one of the deadly sins. Lucifer because of pride,greed and envy wanted to be God . Lucifer could have been contented to be one of the archangels.
Our God who is described as composed of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is a great example of sharing, Study them as you will and you will not see envy in them.
As Christians we need to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to develop the fruit of the Spirit like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness , goodness, gentleness,faithfulness, meekness and self control.
(i need to study more on how to deal with envy ,any suggestion ? )
