Envy Devotional: Friday, February 26

Begin with prayer.  Just sit silently before the Lord.

Read Proverbs 14:30: A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.

Envy if left go will eat away our spirits and cause us to find no joy in life, it will rot our bones. Can you pinpoint a time today when you were envious?  Did you even realize that you were having feelings of envy?

Envy causes us to lose focus of the many things that God has blessed us with.  Take a few minutes and make a list of those things that you are truly grateful for.  

Pray that your heart will grow in peace and contentment in Jesus.
