Today one of my colleague got awarded. Congratulations dear friend! This person got this award due to shear hard work. I am going to congratulate this person as soon as I meet in person.
When I first got the news of this award, I was suddenly gripped by the sense of jealousy. I was shocked to find myself having jealous feeling towards my own co-worker. I had forgotten that I am still prone to this feeling.
I was kind of ashamed of myself that even after following the Lord for so many years, I am still vulnerable to jealousy. It was a humbling experience. I was made aware of my own flaws. I realised that there are many areas in which I need to be sanctified. Jealousy is one of them, there are many more areas where I need improvement.
This is the message Jesus Christ gave to me. He said that you are not walking in my ways. Look inside, you are full of jealousy and strife. You are walking by the desires of human nature.
Dear Lord, I repent of my jealousy. I ask you to pardon me. I request you Lord for grace to overcome my jealousy completely. In Jesus name.
1 Corinthians 3:3 NASBS
for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men?
