Envy is a dead-end street. It is tragic for a person to envy the gifts, abilities and possessions of another, when what he has been given was designed by God for him and him alone. When you accept the fact that you are uniquely gifted by God, you have placed yourself in the most strategic position to impact your family, workplace and community. Plus, you will be a happier person who is not paralyzed by the lie that you were given a raw deal in life. The Bible says: Proverbs 14:30 A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. Instead of envying other people learn to appreciate the blessings they receive. Learn to celebrate the victories of people around you. Empathize with them in their times of defeat.
