THE CURE FOR JEALOUSY

THE CURE FOR JEALOUSY - Suppose you spotted a flame in your house. How would you react? Would you shrug your shoulders and walk away, saying, “ Eh, a little fire never hurt any house.” Of course not. You’d put it out. Why? Because you know, left untended, fire consumes all that’s consumable. For the sake of your house, you don’t play with fire.

THE CURE FOR JEALOUSY

Suppose you spotted a flame in your house. How would you react? Would you shrug your shoulders and walk away, saying, “ Eh, a little fire never hurt any house.” Of course not. You’d put it out. Why? Because you know, left untended, fire consumes all that’s consumable. For the sake of your house, you don’t play with fire.

For the sake of your heart, the same is true. The name of the fire? Solomon tagged it in Song of Solomon 8:6 (RSV): “Jealousy is cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire.”

Do you know what the cause of jealousy is? Distrust. Do you know what the cure for jealousy is? Trust. Is the flame of jealousy beginning to consume your heart? Are you jealous of someone’s success or possessions? Then ask God for deeper trust. He will help put out the fire.
