"Do not let your heart envy sinners,
but always be zealous for the fear of the LORD.
There is surely a future hope for you,
and your hope will not be cut off."
What do you wish you had? Whose life do you really wish you could live? Who do you envy?
All too often it is easy to look at the world around us through lenses tainted by society's greed and mindless consumerism. We need to look at the world through Jesus' eyes... to see what really--truly-- is important. Suddenly, possessions... wealth... a nice house...designer brands...luxury vehicles, etc... won't seem quite so important anymore.
Thank God for the gifts he has given you and give generously from those gifts. Covet only God's wisdom and the fruits of the Spirit. Strive to be more like Christ... not more like Hollywood stars, corporate CEOs or even the guy down the street.
There is hope and a future in God. Can't say the same about anything our society has to offer.
