eSeed: George Was Given A Bike, Too

Read 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

A boy begged his father for a bicycle, and one day his father gave him a beauty. With joy he rode off to show it to his friends.

He soon returned, and complained tearfully, “George has been given a bike, too. And it’s better than mine.”

Jealousy! It rages in the hearts of children and adults.

Jealousy turned Lucifer into Satan and angels into demons. It killed Abel and cast Daniel into the den of lions. It put a crown of thorns on the head of our Lord and nailed Him to a cross.

There’s no profit or pleasure in jealousy, only pain.

Let’s pray, “Lord, keep me from jealousy, and keep jealousy from me.”

Prayer: Fill our hearts, Father, with Thy love. Inspire us to be patient and kind, never envious or jealous, never haughty or rude, never to hold grudges or to grumble: in Thy name. Amen.
