Far back as I can remember, Mankind used to see the World through clear lenses; Nowadays, not so much. While some people have found a way to maintain composure and grace; others have evolved into self-centered/self-absorb beings, freeing their ego to cause chaos on its path, pressuring their brains to think the unthinkable and allowing their mouths to speak the unforgettable.
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” – 1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV)
Jealousy made a comeback and seems to be one of the most cherishable words on the street. I am talking about the Jealousy that can’t stop comparing and think it’s on top of the World. While people are dying of famine and gunshots; others give praises to jealousy! Seriously?
Jealousy is all about the self-esteem of the thinker. If you believe to be a good person, to look good and have a good life, why should you care about what others think of you? If you don’t know for sure that someone envies you; why even say it? Unless it’s the other way around.
REASONS NOT TO ENVY:
» Philippians 4:13
» God loves us the same (John 3:16)
» We are all Unique and no one compares to us. No one.
» We cannot envy someone we do not know unless we’ve walked in their shoes and enjoyed it.
The mind is a strange tool. Unless we ask from the source, we most definitely will never know the truth; only ‘the truth’ we create in our own mind based on some assumptions. When people talk about us, it’s not always in a negative way. They may be complimenting us to someone else. Have we ever thought about that? Or are we so bitter that we ceased to see beauty in the World?
Be inspired by people to be more productive and become a part of a solution rather than a problem.
