The vanity of envy

Envy is something that has existed since the time of Abel and Cain, because we already know what happened in this story found in the book of Genesis, where Cain saw how Abel’s offering was more pleasing than his own before God. He was moved to act with envy deceived by the enemy.

Everything that your brother undertakes and gives to the Lord, is the same God who has shown all His excellence and that is why we must show our good conduct before the Lord without envy or being vain before everything.

Let us remember that he who is envious, his spirit will live in affliction. The preacher talks about what happens to people of excellent work and good conduct:

Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 4:4

We all know that there are many who demonstrate good excellence and good behavior in their different areas of work, also serving the Lord, giving everything good to please him, this causes envy in many, and envy causes many bad things to happen.

This is the thought and the deeds of a foolish man, who envy the good works done by the man who walks under the Word of the Lord. Do not envy the good works of your neighbor, turn away from evil and unite so that your work may also be good before the Lord.

I have no greater joy than this
It does not depend on us but on God
