Is jealousy justified sometimes?

Steven Bobb

Beloved Servant
If "jealousy" means disliking the unfairness of some situations, I would say that the jealousy is justified.If there's something you crave more than anything, it's always out of reach, then you hear that someone else gets it,if not liking that makes you "jealous", then count me in.Now..I hear of people who have financial problems,then see someone else win the lottery.A person in ill health sees a jogger fly by their window.But for me, the "jealousy comes with those who have more time than me.As busy as I've been, and with no sign of it easing up..then I go into a business when it's "slow,"and see them sitting around ,how can I NOT be jealous,knowing ThEY are getting what I want?I'm "jealous" because of the unfairness.I think it would be "fair" if everyone had it "equal" instead of one gets it, and the other doesn't.What some see as a sin , by being "jealous",I call it a cry for fairness. Didn't Jesus say, in the Beatitudes,"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled"Is calling for fairness a form of hungering and thirsting for righteousness?

Was Jesus jelous of anything when He was on earth? Did He ever show any signs that He wanted what others had? Remember that jelousy is cousing of greed. We seem to focus on what we want and loose sight of what we really need. Jesus wil provide with everything you ask Him in faith believing. Now, the question comes to us. Is jelousy a sin against God? I think it is. It is a feeling that satan brings to you, a fear that someone will take something that is yours. Like thinking someone will steal your wifes affection and care. Just give all negative feelings and thoughts to Jesus. He will fix the problem and you will not be found accountable for what it was said or done.

It is all part of counting all things as joy. If you see others having down time and that is what you desire why can't you be happy for them as unto yourself? That happiness would return unto you Steven. What we do unto others returns unto us Steven.

Well if you're alright with being stuck in a traffic jam for an hour, yet seeing the cars on the other side of the highway whizzing by with no problems,...I look at it as crying out against unfairness,

At times we are on the other side of the highway moving along peacefully, why not be happy for them and pray for each other as we are all in the Earth together as a whole? Shouldn't we pray for each other to be blessed to move along peacefully?

FYI... that's "envy" and it's sure to bring evil into your heart. Besides would be "jealous" of someone who has cancer? and say because they have it, you should...am sure that's your definition of "fair". Christ knew this when he recommended in Matt 6:25-34. Know now that anxiety brings comparison, which in turn brings envy and that's will root evil in your heart. You might think that because you can't have it, others should not. The key to happiness is contentment...do spend your time thinking of the ills... but think of the strength...no one plans how to live in death, but how to live in life... you can not be envious of the rich man who is dying of cancer nor of the Rockstar who hides at certain times of the year because insanity rakes his entire being. CONTENTMENT
