Jealousy

From Series: Wise Words

Proverbs 27:4  (ID: 2280)

Jealousy that is not dealt with radically, immediately, and consistently can enslave us, with disastrous effects. Left unchecked, it can stunt spiritual growth, destroy relationships, and wreak havoc throughout an organization. Examining the features and consequences of jealousy, Alistair Begg explains that the cure begins by acknowledging its sinfulness and bringing it into the light of God’s presence. There, through our union with Christ, we find the power to reject the burden of jealousy and pursue genuine Christian growth.


4Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming,

but who can stand before jealousy?
