Comparing yourself with others often causes envy. Which we know is a total soul crusher. Here are 3 ideas for how to overcome feeling envy or jealousy towards others.
Rejoice: Send an email to someone who has received amazing news! Romans 12:15 “Rejoice with those who rejoice.”
Be Patient: Careers and relationships can collapse under too much, too soon. Embrace where you are now instead of longing for something different.
Count the cost: The truth is we are seldom ever jealous of all the work a person does – just the outcome.
Questions for further thought:
1. Out of the steps given today to end envy, which one could you start with?
2. Are there any other ideas that you either do or can think of that may help with envy?
Challenge: Extra verses to read: Exodus 20:17 and 1 Peter 5:6
