Leadership Devos – Proverbs 14:30 – Fourth week of Lent

ENVY – “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Envy is, both, wanting what others have and wishing that they did not have it.  It is looking at others gifts, possessions and relationships and not recognizing the blessings God has already given. It is focusing on “want” with no gratefulness or contentment with what you already have.  How would giving things away free me from envy?  – Lord, teach me, like the Apostle Paul, to be content in plenty and in nothing, trusting in your mercy and provisions.
