Envy Rots the Bones


A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. Proverbs14:30

Are you at peace? With God? With yourself? With others? What do you think about when you lie in bed right before you go to sleep? If you’re reading this, you’ve probably settled the eternity question, but what about the here and now?

What about envy? Envious of the life that someone else leads, thinking that person has no worries or problems? Envious of that person’s success or looks or wealth or fame or kids or job or [fill in the blank]? The Scripture warns us to be careful about that because it could eat away at us and sap energy from us.

I’ll return to my original question:

Are you at peace?
