{15/12/2011}   Combat Jealousy

Dislike other people? Too much comparison? Roll eyes with repulsion? Blame for misery and despair?

Sounds familiar?

Here are the few ways to cope with jealousy:

  • Be self-controlled enough to avoid jealousy.
  • Pray for peace about who you are and what you have.
  • Discover joy in your life.
  • Love people.
  • Practice faithfulness.
  • Show kindness, goodness, and gentleness to others.
  • Have patience.

Read this somewhere days  ago. If you will simplify these ways, you can find it in Galatians 5, where the fruit of the Spirit listed. Remember the fruit of Spirit?

  1. Love
  2. Joy
  3. Peace
  4. Forbearance
  5. Kindness
  6. Goodness
  7. Faithfulness
  8. Gentleness
  9. Self-control

We all know that jealousy usually takes the place of something that we are not willing to accept about ourselves. Allowing it in our lives, we’re just shunning our insecurities—nothing more. We’re just getting rid of our personal problems in the form of jealousy. But you know what? Applying these virtues (above) and through God’s help, we can resist jealousy in our everyday lives. We can survive without it. Keep in mind: Jealousy is not worth a dime.

Be BLESSED—happy and contented! 🙂  -shekinah
