The definition of jealousy is an unhappy or angry feeling of wanting to have what someone else has. Isn’t this a wasted emotion? Don’t you think God made enough of everything to go around for everyone? None of us is perfect and we all have flaws. Why not be yourself? God does not make mistakes.
If it is material wealth that inspires you, it’s all at your disposal. You need not obsess over what another person has. If you want it, go out and get it. Save, or plan for your desire but don’t find jealousy in another’s accomplishments. You should love that person for their success and steadfastness.
If you are unhappy about working at a lower paying job, take the plunge to better yourself and choose a better paying profession. But, should you degrade a person for becoming a doctor, let’s say because it causes you to look at your own lack of accomplishment? Absolutely not. Everything is your choice. We are a very fortunate society in America. We are able to make our own choices.
Make the choice to LOVE, not ENVY.
