(Pro 27:4 KJV) Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
One question that comes to mind is “Why is ‘jealousy’ (7068) worse than ‘wrath’ (2534) or ‘anger’ (639)?” Is jealousy an emotion or a decision? Does it start with one and become the other? I guess that is more than one question. Maybe it starts as a temptation and becomes a sin.
I think of jealousy as being something that has a target in a quality that cannot be changed. Thus I usually don’t get mad at someone who is better looking than I am but I might be jealous. While the target can’t be changed the attitude can, and must.
So? It might be a time to ask yourself if you are jealous of anyone else. Let us hope it is a vain search.
