Composed–Releasing Jealousy's Grip
James 3:13-18-- "13 Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace." Questions: • How did this message increase your understanding of envy and jealousy and their dangers? • What happened when you asked yourself: "Whose failure would I secretly celebrate?" The solutions: Believing God for good rather than accusing Him AND Choosing to celebrate others--which is most important? How have they helped you this week?
