"Do not let your heart envy sinners, but be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day;" - Proverbs 23 V17

"Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another." - Galatians 5 V26

We live in an age where there is tough competition for literally everything. We try to get ahead of our competitors by any means. But the Word of God teaches us to be zealous for the fear of the Lord because He is in control of everything. Being part of the body of Christ, we should set such examples among men that our Lord is glorified and people come to know the very nature of our God. Let us pray for the fruits of the Spirit and ask God to lead our way.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
