THE HEAVENS ARE AS HIGH ABOVE EARTH AS MY WAYS ARE ABOVE YOUR WAYS, MY THOUGHTS ABOVE YOUR THOUGHTS. IT IS THE LORD WHO SPEAKS.
'Friend, I am not being unjust to you. Am I not free to do what I wish with my own? Are you envious because I am generous?' The last will be first, & the first shall be last.
Be ambitious & the best you can be; but not envious, coveting another's prestige & possessions; you may have worked harder & longer, but satisfaction comes from achievement, not competition.
Prayer favors humility, reminding us God owes nothing to anyone. All is gift, & gratitude precludes jealously--prayer shares the other's good fortune, without lamenting differences.
