Saturday, October 20, 2018

Jealousy is not the best for you and I.
Today, I walk you through my process of going from jealous to joyful for others.

Let's Talk about Jealousy:
What is the object of your jealousy? Is is a person, a situation, a material possession?
How does that feeling make you feel?
Jealousy is not from God. You and I need to turn away from it.
How can you turn away from jealousy today?
I have learned that when God wants me to turn away from something, it is because He has a great blessing for me. What is the blessing that awaits you on the other side of repentance from jealousy?

Let's take a Deep Dive. Jealousy is a clear sign that we are not content with the life God is giving us. Here is what 1 Timothy 6:6-12 (NIV) says:

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Meditate on this Scripture. If you want to know more about the background of this passage, please go to Merry Ministries and scroll down until you find 1 Timothy (you can also listen here 53:30). Once you are sure about what God's intention for us is, answer the following questions:

What does 1 Timothy 6:6-12 say?
What does  1 Timothy 6:6-12 mean?
How does 1 Timothy 6:6-12 apply to me.
