Everything the Bible Says about Envy and Jealousy: From Genesis to Revelation a complete compilation of verses from the king James by Jason Rollin
4 Examples Of Jealousy In The Bible
All of these thoughts stem from a single root cause, jealousy. This is especially true when we begin to make minor comparisons about our lives to others around us, which can quickly escalate into jealousy. Have you ever looked at a cactus and compared it to a flower? The cactus is prickly, dry, and sometimes not as beautiful to the naked eye; while the flower stands tall, beautiful, and smelling wonderful. At the same time, the cactus can provide nourishment, protect itself, and requires virtually no maintenance or upkeep, while the flower is most of the time a decorative piece, very fragile, and requires a lot of care to maintain its beauty. God has a lot to say about beauty , afterall. God created each of us differently and for different purposes.
As such, I'm stressing the dangers of these two negative emotions by sharing some Biblical references. Job ; "Surely resentment destroys the fool, and jealousy kills the simple. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Such wisdom does not come from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where envy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil. Galatians ; "Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
