The same is true for us. When we are jealous of our neighbor’s nice car or our friend’s better job or even our cousin’s big house, the jealousy eats away at our soul and leads to emotional, mental, spiritual, and even physical death. And in our jealousy we want the other person removed so we can have what they have. Simply put we want the other person to die so we can have what they have. Now, we would never say that we want them dead but when we are jealous and want it more than they seem to, we are saying we want them to be removed from having that particular thing and given to us. And it gets even worse when we are jealous of our brothers and sisters in Christ. They have a better spiritual gift, or experienced a bigger blessing from God, or are pastor of a bigger church, or got to go on that particular mission trip. We are jealous over what God has given them and forgotten all about what God has given us. And we have no room to be jealous ever, because our Savior, Jesus Christ gave up everything for us to come and give His life for our jealousy of others.
