Proverbs 23:17 – Do Not Envy Others

Let not your heart envy sinners: but be you in the fear of the LORD all the day long.

– Proverbs 23:17

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We often envy someone who has ability and caliber. Why do we envy such a person? Because he is better than us, He possesses what we lack. We are not as good as him so we envy him. In fact, no matter what gifts and merits people have, we should not envy them but only look up to God. For people’s gifts and merits are bestowed by God, people have nothing praiseworthy. So we should worship God, only God deserves our worship forever.
