Never Become Jealous Of One Another!

Neal Pollard

  • If You Do Not Want To Be Enraged, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Prov. 6:34).
  • If We Do Not Want To Lend Our Hearts To Contradicting Scripture And Blasphemy, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Acts 13:45).
  • If We Do Not Want To Be Part Of Chaos And Division, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Acts 17:5).
  • If We Want To Behave Properly, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Rom. 13:13).
  • If We Do Not Want To Be Fleshly, There Is No Room For Jealousy (1 Cor. 3:3).
  • If We Love One Another, There Is No Room For Jealousy (1 Cor. 13:4).
  • If We Wish To Avoid Being What We Do Not Wish To Be, There Is No Room For Jealousy (2 Cor. 12:20).
  • If We Are Trying To Bear The Fruit Of The Spirit And Avoid The Lusts Of The Flesh, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Gal. 5:19ff).
  • If We Wish To Avoid A Reputation For Loving Disputing And Controversy, There Is No Room For Jealousy (1 Tim. 6:4).
  • If We Would Avoid The Unprofitable And Worthless, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Titus 3:9).
  • If We Do Not Desire To Be Arrogant And Lie Against The Truth, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Js. 3:14).
  • If We Do Not Wish To Engage In Disorder And Evil Things, There Is No Room For Jealousy (Js. 3:16).

The Bible has praise for zeal for the right things, but it roundly condemns that negative passion prone to strife, contention, and wrangling, that spirit that will “degenerate into a jealousy which makes war upon the good it sees in another, thus troubling and diminishing it” (Zodhiates on ZELOS, WSDict., elec. ed., 2000).  Let us discipline ourselves to be happy for the successes and happinesses of others, choosing never to let jealous feelings overcome a godly heart and attitude.  Never become jealous of one another!

    Mama always warned me about the green eyed monster and she was right. Thankful that I had a Mother and Father who studied the scriptures and taught them to me and thank you for reminding me of those things they taught as well.
