Today, I'd like us to discuss this topic of jealousy! Did you know that jealousy is a spirit? So many passages in the Bible describes God as jealous when it came to the love He has for the nation of Israel.
Here is the thing about God, He is righteous and there is no atom of wickedness in Him, so when He is jealous, be rest assured it is for a good reason.
Now, for us as humans, we are full of both good and evil - to be fair, mostly inclined to do evil than good, because we are weak and aren't master handlers of righteousness like God! So what happens when the spirit of jealousy comes upon us? Have you noticed that jealousy shows up where there is love or admiration? In 1 Corinthians 13, it specifically said, Love does not envy (an indication that true love never allows its jealousies to transition in envy).
So, I'd like to read real responses about times where you had to secretly handle jealousy. Make no mistake that we are not jealous by nature. If we were created in His image, then we are like Him.
Let's make this forum groovy, shall we?
