Hey everyone and welcome to Refinery Life Australia.

Our theme for the next eight weeks is “The Seven Deadly Sins.”

These seven sins are inward attitudes that affect character as well as conduct.

Through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, we can be delivered from the seven deadly sins.

Today we are talking about The Third Deadly Sin, Envy.

Envy and jealousy are identical twins.

They walk hand in hand through our lives.

Like the sins of pride and anger, envy is an all too common sin.

Few of us escape its clutches.

It creeps into our relationships and destroys our confidence in ourselves and in others.

Some claim to be exempt from this third deadly sin.

“I don’t have a jealous bone in my body” is more often talk than reality.

There are many examples of envy and jealousy in the Bible.

King Saul was jealous of David’s growing popularity.

First Samuel 18:28-29 says, Thus Saul saw and knew that the Lord was with David, and that Michal, Saul’s daughter, loved him; and Saul was still more afraid of David. So Saul became David’s enemy continually.

Joseph felt the jealousy of his brothers.

Genesis 37:11 records, And his brothers envied him, but his father kept the matter in mind.

Jesus was also a victim of jealousy, Mark 15:9-10, But Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.

Until next time

Stay in the Blessings
