Envy is a feeling of discontent and resentment aroused by, and in conjunction with, a desire for the possessions or qualities of another. The Bibles tells us envy, when left unchecked, becomes more than a feeling...it becomes an action like gossip, theft, and even murder.
Instead of giving celebration for the good fortune of others, the envious man broods and conspires to take their blessing away. Instead of giving proper honor to those who have worked hard to achieve, the envious woman cries foul and contrives to take from what others have rightly earned. Friends, consider this truth; you can never be envious and really happy at the same time. Indeed, envy is the ugliest of all sins.
Take Away: You can never be envious and really happy at the same time.
