Do you have a jealous streak? Jealousy is not only alive and well in love triangles; people envy one another, feeling jealousy over jobs, homes, prestige or leadership roles. It is not a personality flaw to be overlooked, more of a deadly cancer ready to spread.
We can defeat envy with the fruit of the Spirit. Peace within gives contentment, erasing seeds of envy and bitterness. "A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones (Proverbs 14:30 NIV)." Envy spoils us like produce left on a shelf and spreads deep down to our bones. "Father, I need your sustaining peace to rule in my heart and mind".
