Words of Comfort: Cancer of jealousy.

Fortify yourself with the love of God. It will be a shield against the sin of jealousy. When a brother or sister is praised and we are neglected, love will not notice. It is blind to the shallowness of the praise of man. If King Saul had loved David, he would have rejoiced when David was praised for his endeavors of war (see 1 Sam. 18:6–8). Instead, Saul allowed the cancer of jealousy to eat away at his soul. Hatred and murder were its bitter bedfellows.
