We have all felt jealousy or envy at one time or another. It’s part of our fallen nature, original sin. We want what someone else has.
Jealousy can lead to serious sin. Jealousy led to the desire to murder. Examples:
- King Saul with David
- Joseph’s brothers in the Old Testament story
- Herod with baby Jesus
- The chief priests with Jesus
Jealousy is a killer. It kills people, it killed Jesus, it kills ourselves, it kills community.
