Envy is the meanest attitude

envyEnvy is uglier than jealousy.
Jealousy wants to take hold of what it doesn't have.
Envy is much meaner. Envy is the desire for something to be taken away from another.

Envy brings others down. Envy destroys others. Envy leaves all others below and by virtue of their destroyed life. We use envy to rise above others once they have reached bottom. Envy seeks others to reach a bottom, and employs tactics of destruction to bring it about.

Envy is revealed in grief when we read that their is only two witnesses chosen by God in Revelation, and only twelve chosen as disciples by Jesus.
Envy wants a happy marriage to fail, a exemplary life to be scandalized, and the innocent brought to corruption. Recently, I have seen it used to take the extraordinarily spiritually gifted made out to be satanic, and their gifts of the Spirit the fruit of evil.

Can anything be meaner than envy?

Lord, guard our hearts against envy, with your meekness. Teach us to be content with what we are, no more and no less. Teach us to seek other's highest good, for such is the way of love. When we see others besides ourselves that have been called by you Lord to a higher calling, may we be found in celebration of heart for the goodness that you bestowed upon them, wanting only a more glorious display of your goodness upon them to the honor and praise of your name, oh Lord.

Comment from: Pam [Member]
It was envy that produced the first act of murder when Cain destroyed Able. Envy respects no bonds and is expressed in some of the most horrible crmes imagainable. It steals the sanity of those taken by it. We need to pray for those who are caught in the sin of envy for as they destroy others thinking to get what they have, they will as Cain destroy their own lives, as well.

Amen and amen, Trent.

Wise words indeed Pam and Trent, wise words.

Bless the name of the Lord, for He has blessed you with wisdom in Him and His word, yea even by the gift of understanding have you spoken His truths...

understanding is given, it is by no means acquired - the gift of God through Christ and the Spirit to those who seek Him and strive daily to be one after His own heart; and in doing so you have blessed me and all those who have ears to hear what the Lord has spoken through the minds of His servants who love Him with their whole hearts. Amen.

Bless the name of the Lord! Shout it from the roof tops, yea, in quite and in secret bless His name without ceasing.

Good one, Trent. Envy is one of the meanest of all evils found in the corrupted heart of man. - along with ingratitude & bitterness, it eats as a cancer at everything it touches.

May GOD keep us vigilant against it in ANY form that it may take.

"Teach us to seek the other's highest good, for such is the way of love." - Amen.
