Anger is cruel and can destroy like a flood, but jealousy is much worse.

Proverbs 27:4 ERV

In our pride, we can think that jealousy is “no big deal” or a “little sin” that we can handle, but the Bible says that no human person can endure and withstand jealousy. Jealousy leaves us feeling defeated and incapable of being close to other people, stealing any happiness we have. When we are jealous we can not enjoy our own lives and become the person we are meant to become, because we are wasting our lives aways wanting what other people have and too afraid of being replaced.

Who are you jealous of and how has this hurt your relationships? What have God put in your life that you miss out on because you are busy being jealous?
