#Jealousy and Envy Hurts The Conscience

Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary describes the word jealous as, " intolerant of rivalry or unfaithfulness, disposed to suspect rivalry or unfaithfulness, hostile toward a rival or one believed to enjoy an advantage." Some have even described this state of negativity as, "rotten to the bones." It is truly the type of thing we want to avoid because when we express it, we become inferior. Think about how the person who spends his or her time plotting on innocent individuals to cause them harm becomes inferior due to their negative activity.

#Racism is a force of negativity that is "rotten to the bones." Why is it that some of the most intelligent people in the world which consist of staff and #students at various universities are still having dilemmas based on such a negative issue as racism or skin color? How sad our hope for the future is if we have to depend on intellect and youth to resolve this problem of putrid, negativity which can devastate innocent victims.

Hatred Can Be Detrimental

Suspicious behavior against the innocent victim can bring up a valid source of hatred. King Saul of ancient Israel is a perfect example of this. He once loved David but when some of the women within his kingdom was bragging about how, "Saul has struck down his thousands, and David his tens of thousands." (1 Samuel 18:7) Saul became livid at David who had no idea how the King's feelings drastically changed against him. When people are dealing with envy or jealousy, they become unreasonable. Everyone around them can tell they are out of control but the individual expressing resentment. King Saul, was out of control to the point that he wanted to kill David. This jealousy and hatred of David brought destruction and eventual death to Saul. What a horrible end he experienced because Saul did not gain control over jealousy and envy.

The desire and craving for another person's power or wealth have caused many wars. Millions of people were killed and continue to die today because of envy or jealousy. #The World Book Encyclopedia explains, "Some of the basic causes of war may be a desire for more land, a desire for more wealth, a desire for more power, or a desire for security." Jealousy, hatred, and envy was the theme of the blockbuster hit movie, #blackpanther. These destructive forces almost annihilated the kingdom of its inhabitants.

We must fight and get under control our desire to be envious or jealous. Nothing good ever comes from these type of actions. Imperfection, causes us to carry out these terrible thoughts in our heart. Having a realistic discussion with others about your desires to demonstrate these tendencies can be vital. Talking to someone who understands and can #help you with the problem can be a relief. Praying to God about your issues with jealousy is also important since this is one of the major sins that God positively hates. Try to be a better person by reversing that jealousy into love. Think of something positive about the person rather than dwelling on the negative thoughts of your devious plans. You can be a happier person but also cause you to grow in love and appreciation for others. We must conquer jealousy and envy before it conquers us.

The word envy was similar to jealousy. It is described as, "Malice, painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with the desire to possess the same advantage." These are powerful words given by Webster, to help us avoid these characteristics so that we can become more potent in our lives without surrounding ourselves with such harmful acts.
