Envy & Jealousy |Take Advice from the Bible

Wise Library 1985/   Margaret W. Lavigne

Galatians 6:4; “Let each one examine his own work. Then he can take pride in himself and not compare himself with someone else.”

 

People are impatitent. People suffer for what they can’t have in life. I would say, there is positive jealousy, namely wise envy,  and negative jealousy, namely destructive envy.

 

Those who have self-love and confidence in themselves practice wise envy and vice versa. Those who harbor absolute pessimism, self-denial, or even self-hatred are more likely to suffer from destructive envy by devaluing those they envy. 

 

People who practice wise envy will befriend those they envy and learn from their friends. By doing so, they keep becoming a better me. Those who suffer from negative jealousy are those who lose hope or suffer from depression, consciously or not. 

 

I would say, jealousy has something to do with self-denial, low self-esteem, and absolute pessimism. Everyone has hard lessons in life. People are jealous of other people’s life because they have little knowledge of what other people have overcome and conquered. The Bible makes it clear that you and I will go through training and trials in life. People envy others’ life and they prefer not to experience the life challenges and suffering other people have experienced. 

 

There is positive jealousy that you learn from those you envy about and you believe you can earn what you want in life even though it can never be perfect. Life can be beautiful without perfection, which can be applied to everyone. Separations and variables are the rules. We’d better learn to be grateful for what we have for the moment.

As we believe we are the lucky ones, we invite luck. As we believe we are the miserable unloved ones, we invite tragedies and regrets.

Take Advice from the Bible

1.2 John 1:8 ESV
“Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.”

2. Mark 7:21-22; “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness.”

3. Job 5:2; “Surely resentment destroys the fool, and jealousy kills the simple.”

4.1. Proverbs 14:30; “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”

5. James 3:14-16; “But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t brag and deny the truth. Such wisdom does not come from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where envy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil.”

6. Exodus 20:17; “Do not covet your neighbor’s house. Do not covet your neighbor’s wife, his male or female slave, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

7.1 Corinthians 13:4; “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

8. Psalm 37:1-3; “Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.”

9. 1 Peter 2:1-2; “Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation.”

10. Proverbs 23:17-18; “Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the LORD. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.”

11.Galatians 5:19-21; “Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

According to the Bible, “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones” and “If you harbour bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts,” you will “find disorder and every evil practice” (Proverbs 14:30, James 3:14-16).

 

It’s scientifically proven that Jealousy triggers the body’s stress response, leading to spikes of cortisol. Coristol is the stress hormone. In a sense, jealousy has something to do with a person’s anxiety that he/she feels threatened by others’ existence. It’s worth noting that jealousy potentially provokes depression and chronic stress. Chronic stress is the best environment for cancer.  Jealousy has something to do with pride, vanity and narcissism, a sense of superiority, or even unhealed trauma. Vanity leads people astray. Save regrets in life.

Life can be beautiful without perfection. There’s a strong link between unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, people only witness unconditional love during hard times. Unconditional love is found in imperfections. Imperfections teach us to be humble and compassionate. If you believe in miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the power of tenderness. Earn approval and luck from God. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” for “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we grow. There's a strong connection between unhealed trauma and a dysfunctional immune system. If you rush yourself to become a better me, that might be a sign of unhealed trauma. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Negative emotions and chronic stress sabotage people's immune system. 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems, and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” Muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that high blood sugar leads to reduced muscle mass. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. People suffer from suppressed anger and pessimism. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies, and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Stop recording the faults of others and practice compassion mediation instead.我喜歡文字,大概是因為我喜歡永恆的東西,而世上多數的東西都不是。不是所有人都需要心靈雞湯,如果你絕對正向而強壯。養心養身,而潛意識24小時不睡覺,身體自癒的開關落在潛意識的區塊,只有絕對入骨的正向樂觀才能痊癒,恐懼傷骨傷腎,老人家們容易膝蓋牙齒不好是因為恐懼多憂慮多。中醫主張生悶氣、恐懼、悲觀和過食是疾病的根源。自認不是棉花糖的勵志派,是寫實警世的定位,但我肯定有邏輯基礎的正向思考,Bible很多內容都很科學,也符合中醫的論點。佛教主張前世今生的因果論,而 Bible主張人生只有一回,但人生必有難題。難題分兩種,一種是磨練鍛鍊心智的training,好好表現,災難的背後會有禮物。禍福相依,壞消息可能帶來跳板、第三條路的視野、或逆境激發潛力。好消息往往伴隨更多責任挑戰,甚至暗藏陷阱,很多好消息最後變成頭痛點。第二種難題是試煉,上蒼期望你我在逆境中堅守,試煉,是上蒼決定該不該給你我天堂入場卷的門票!猶太人虔誠,但他們的教堂沒有神像沒有十字架,只有書(因為信仰在心中)。人生有很多上蒼的隨堂考,當掉就要重修(歷史就會重演)。氣生災,如果你我相信成功需要幸運,把「柔」做好,就可以賺福氣。Bible強調柔軟的力量、自律、謙卑、口舌之禍及傲慢之惡。寫信給站長(責任編輯)司馬儀: jpsiawase@gmail.com 如果遭受暴力(家暴,或霸凌)、性侵或性騷擾或任何身心虐待,撥打113保護專線,24小時全年無休。生活學業工作等等困擾,撥打安心專線「1925」。若簽約租賃碰到詐騙,撥打165反詐騙專線(警察)或內政部警政署反詐騙諮詢專線:0800-018-110
