Jealous for Death Or Cheers for Life!

One of life’s great lessons is to stand and applaud someone when they just unexpectedly landed a big sum of money,  or the job you wanted, or took the big vaca you couldn’t afford, or their mortgage took 25 days and yours took 90 and brought massive complications to your world.

Romans 12:15 (NIV)

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

It’s easy to mourn with people that mourn – well I think it is.  But to stand and cheer, high five, slap the back, yell “awesome,” when someone is getting that “something” you’ve been aiming for, setting goals for, thirsting after, hoping and planning for . . . or even praying for.  Now, that will change your life!

The alternative will slowly and silently kill you.  Look at this!

Proverbs 14:30 (NIV)  jealous - square

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

James 3:16 (NIV)

For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

Ouch!  Let’s not go there!!!!

So . . . to cheer and be happy for someone elses great fortune (generosity of praise) is the cure for jealousy!  WOW!

God is amazing!
