Jealousy

dead-trees-947331_960_720

An ugly word
Opposite of love
Cruel and spiteful
Bears judgement
Never fulfills
Corrupt and vile
Manipulates the mind
Insincere and wicked
Destroys lives
Ruins hearts
Selfish in reasoning
Unfairly accusing
Loves only self
Chooses hate
Culminates insecurity
Demeaning and evil
Eliminates hope
Sacrifices nothing
Murders the soul

Written by, Michelle Cook

 

Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
