    TOPIC: SUPPORT, NOT ENVY FOR SIBLINGS



    TEXT: GENESIS 37:8

    BIBLE TEXT:
    “And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words” (Genesis 37:8).

    Envy is an ill-feeling of desiring to possess the material or advantage enjoyed by other people. It is the work of the flesh manifested by unregenerate people who become sad and seek to harm those who are endowed with gifts or are more successful.

    It was Tacitus who stated that, “When men are full of envy they disparage everything, whether good or bad.” From our text, we understand that Joseph’s brothers hated him because of a God-given revelation of a glorious future. Similarly, the Jews crucified Jesus because of envy. Indeed, envy is disastrous.

    Rather than displaying envy, a redeemed youth should support others (siblings, brethren, friends and neighbours) to develop their gifts and actualize their God-given dreams. You must seek the good of your neighbours and pray for their success even when they appear to be doing better than you are. The envious will sooner or later be disgraced like Joseph’s envious brothers. The cure for envy is salvation and sanctification.

    Challenge: God delivers me from envy.
    Prayer: Lord, give me grace to overcome envy.
    Quote: The cure for envy is salvation and sanctification
