What fires up envy and pride?

Love does not envy or boast … I Corinthians 13:4b ESV

I won’t sidestep our sin nature, but IMO most acting out reflects personal wounds.

We want to be seen, heard, and loved. We want good things. We have a heart and mind that was fashioned for Eden and this broken world gives us but a twisted shadow of what we are meant for.

In trying to sort this out, I’m playing with the concepts of grace and contentment. Grace for myself and others. Contentment with where God has placed me and with what I have. Can I trust His wisdom in this?

What kicks envy or pride into gear for you?

Surely it’s spring now. 🙂
