Envy   One-a-Day Friday 7/14/23

A life worthy

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy… (1 Corinthians 13:4).

If I’m looking at you, then I’m not looking at Him.

If I’m obsessed with what He’s given you, then I’m not thankful for what He’s given me. 

If I’m trying to be you, then how, Beloved, how can I be conformed to the image of His Son?


If I’m trying to love you

I will rejoice in your success.

If I’m trying to love you

I will praise God for the gifts He has given you.

If I’m trying to love you

I will use my gifts to strengthen and encourage you

so  that together we might glorify God.

Even when you annoy me

which, alas, is often.

Happy Friday, Beloved

  1. Yes! Michael, this has been my hope for our Christian Poets & Writers group and a prayer for my family and the church Body of Christ throughout the world. Thanks and blessings.
