Being Jealous What’s the Point?

Many may not believe this, or perhaps you might. I have never been jealous of anything or anybody. Not too long ago, I wrote a post about the fruit of the spirit. Jealousy is a feeling that can get ugly when it gets out of control.

If you find yourself waiting for another’s downfall that’s jealousy. If you find yourself not being able to give sincere compliments that’s jealousy. If you find yourself looking for dirt on a person instead of gold that’s jealousy. If you are trying to get others to think negative about someone that’s jealousy. Being in competition of someone else is jealousy too. Jealousy is an unhealthy emotion and it’s not of God.

Here’s my take on jealousy at one point of my life I weighed over 320 pounds. I weighed more than most of my family members heck more than most people. Springtime or summertime, I would cover up as if it was winter. I never enviously looked at others because I put myself into the position of being overweight. Why be jealous of others behind a position that I put myself in? It makes no sense. I believe if we evaluate ourselves more instead of attacking or blaming others, we all would be great. It’s about the fruit of the spirit.

Meathead

If you have ever watched All in the Family you are aware of Mike and Archie’s relationship. Mike was married to Archie’s daughter Gloria. One day Archie got really angry with Mike and said you sir are a meathead. Mike asked Archie what a meathead was. Archie replied dead from the neck up. According to the Webster’s dictionary a meathead is a stupid person.

Archie use to accuse Mike all the time of acting like he was above people because he was so smart.

One day Archie came clean and admitted the truth which was that he was jealous of Mike. Archie never finished school and he had to work. The only time Archie got the chance to do what he wanted was when he bought a bar and that was late in his life.

I remember the other day reading a post about people who act like they are superior to others. I do admit it happens at times once in awhile. However is the person acting superior or are they smart and the person has a Archie complex? Hmmm. It’s something to think about.

I don’t know about anyone else but I never want a person to downplay who they are in order to make myself feel comfortable. There is always going to be someone who is more smarter, more beautiful, and more talented etc. it’s about being confident in one’s self. Confident people are not threaten by other people’s abilities or qualities.

I always complement people. If a women is beautiful I tell her that she is being jealous isn’t going to change it. I’m thankful that I have never been a jealous person. Jealousy is a waste of energy.

When a person is intimidated by someone else because of the talents that God blessed them with they are the ones who are meatheads.

Do Nice Guys Finish Last?

Recently I watched a video and the guy was saying that nice guys always finishes last that mean guys get the beautiful girls. Immediately it got me to thinking about last according to whom? Who’s race was he watching? We all have hopes, dreams and wants I get it. But we cannot get caught up in man’s race. If we look at others as competition and try to keep up with what they are doing then of course you will come in last. When we try to race in someone’s else race we will always finish last in someone else’s race; it’s not our race.

I don’t know about man’s race but  I know that God keeps His promises every last one of them. God does not lie because He can’t lie!!! God’s timing is perfect. It’s okay to glance at other people’s blessings as an inspiration only not as a competition. Everything that God does is incredible especially His blessings. If we stare at other people’s blessings like driving on the road staring at another car we will miss our turn. If we keep our eyes on the road that God has destined for us only we can win. No one can finish last in their own race. Being in competition with others is very unhealthy anyway we need to focus on the road that God has already mapped out for us individually.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

 

The Green Eyed Monster

Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s . I just wanted to clarify not that it matters what people think, only what God thinks is what’s important.

There is a poem on my blog called My Love in it I express that I have jealousy for a man who I care about. In my opinion a little jealousy is healthy if not then pray for me, please. To me it’s healthy I don’t have jealousy to the point that it becomes an obsession. I won’t go all Lizzy Borden on a guy but I have a fear of losing a man that I care about.

Quite frankly I feel that too often people hold back and that doesn’t help the relationship falling in love requires being vulnerable and the chances of getting hurt as well. Besides feeling jealousy about a man that I cared about is different I have no jealousy towards or about others. I only want what God has for me which is the best and He will bless us all. There is absolutely no reason to be envious of what another person has I mean come on it’s like driving a car and looking all into someone else’s or expecting to get full from someone else’s plate.

Every human being has their own race to run  we’ll never reach the finish line trying to run a race that is not our own. I refuse to miss out on the blessings that God has for me because I am worried about someone else’s. One thing about God He is a show off God when He stunts He stunts hard. God goes hard in the paint when He bless us not with sprinkles either but a shower!!!!! Therefore I wait on the man of the hour and that God Almighty He’s got me!!!!! God’s has all of our backs.
