STOP AND THINK – Envy = sadness on account of the goods possessed by another. (Thomas Aquinas, 13th century Dominican priest)
It seems to be part of our human nature. We’re never satisfied with what we have; it’s never quite enough or it’s not exactly like what we want. What’s worse, we sometimes look at what others have and long for those things. Rather than being happy for the well-being of others and learning to be content with what we have, we become jealous, eaten by envy.
Rejoice with those who rejoice (Romans 12:15). Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have (Hebrews 13:5).
