If you have read some parts of Scripture, you will notice that it is composed of many stories. Each of these stories have major principles and lessons to learn and live by. Two negative emotions for a human being are jealousy and envy.

Jealousy takes place when you want a person all for yourself. There is godly jealousy, just like what God wanted for His people, the Israelites. He became jealous when they began worshipping other gods and idols. This means there is nothing wrong about jealousy if the other person has the right to be jealous, such as the relationship between husband and wife.

On the other hand, envy is a different thing altogether. Envy is like a wound that festers and grows as it becomes unchecked. It is a feeling of disgust toward another person just because he has something that you don’t have.
