Most of us do not like to admit when we are jealous. Jealousy is not a pleasant emotion. We are not proud of ourselves when we are jealous. Perhaps this is because we know that jealousy focuses on what we do not have. We are jealous when people have what we want. We are jealous when we love someone who does not love us.
The antidote is to focus on what we have. And for persons of faith, we have all we need, as we have God’s grace. And since God’s grace is available to all, there is no need to be jealous of grace.
