After catching up on my readings and devotions Wednesday night I prceeded to fall asleep in my chair. Not sure for how long but I woke up at 8:30pm
After I woke, my thoughts were, well I mine as well go back to bed. So I did. But as I was laying in bed I realized something. I realized I am jealous like Saul. This thought came about through my daily devotions, Portraits if Devotions. Where I am reading about Saul and David in 1 Samuel.
Saul was jealous of David. He was jealous of what the people said about himself and David. It was said “Saul was furious and resented this song, ‘The credited tens of thousands to David,’ he complained, but they only credited me with thousands. What more can he have but the Kingdom?” 1 Samuel 18:8
There are times where we feel jealous of someone who has a better job, clothes, car, etc. We think we aren’t good enough, at least that’s how I feel. Quite often I can compare myself to others but really how is that helping me. It’s not. What makes other people happy a won’t necessarily make me happy. I need to learn to enjoy what I have and stop worrying about getting the next best thing.
With help from God, I can do all things.
