Envy Rots the Bones (Proverbs 14)
Here's one for you. Envy rots the bones.
About the Guest
According to Proverbs 14, envy rots the bones. Because it wants what others have it's constantly thirsty, a longing that eats us up from the inside out. The envy trap in families occurs when one mom wants what another mom has or when we covet the material possessions of someone else. Occasionally in blended families I see parents bickering over the loyalties of their children and kids posturing for the affections of their parents. The antidote? A heart at peace. Content with God's provision.
