We have our Eye on Your Bottom Line

Jealousy – Jealousy negatively affects your health and happiness. Countless medical studies have shown that negative stress hormones are released when people are jealous and angry, making them more susceptible to physical illness. Another problem with jealousy is that it negatively affects your relationships with other people. You can’t have a successful relationship with someone you are jealous of. Maybe you are jealous of a friend’s career or of his or her home. Unless you can let the jealousy go and be happy for your friend, your relationship will never work. It doesn’t matter if it is a friend, spouse, etc., jealousy can ruin your relationships. This is what God’s word has to say about wanting what others have: You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. (Deuteronomy 5:21)
