Re: Jealousy: Good or Bad?
I basically equate jealousy with envy and in my younger, more formative years, it bothered the hell out of me much more than it ever does now!
If a person has more wealth than I do, not a problem; a prettier, more affable W or GF, not a problem, better vehicles or better homes, it doesn't phase me!
A wise old Methodist preacher said once in a sermon long ago, that when you get to heaven, not to bother to ask God what he's got in His billfold ~ you'd be surprised to know that it's considerably less than what anyone on Earth has! Thank God that wealth, jealousy, and envy are all purely Earthly attributes and not Heavenly ones!
Since that time, I've not really been all that bothered by what someone has possession of and of what I don't!
And all that I can say is thank God for that!
