Jealousy is a problem that most of us struggle with at some time. When we meet someone more fortunate than we – someone who is enjoying greater success, popularity, and accomplishments – we may feel inferior and resentful. We become critical and make snide remarks, trying to build ourselves up by tearing others down. Those are sure signs of jealousy.
Got sour grapes? Replace bitter envy with the sweetener of love (1 Corinthians 13:4). It works. – Richard W. De Haan
Let me not envy all my neighbors
As they bring home the fruits of their labors;
I’d like to share their joy full measure
And be sincere about my pleasure. – Vandergrift
When you turn green with envy you are ripe for trouble.
