What a concept hmm? Loving someone and not being jealous or envious? Well envy is a very evil and hurtful thing. 'I want this that they have'....'I don't have it'. Jealousy..wow what a topic. Seeing a person you like or are in a relationship slightly "flirting" or something? Oooooo weird right? Well it doesn't just have to do with relationships with the opposite sex of course, but everyday life. Have faith..dont worry. This can be solved by being in a good relationship and having God as your center. Trust helps this all to come together.
Do not envy a violent man or choose any of his ways, for the Lord detests a perverse man but takes the upright into his confidence.
- Proverbs 3:31-32 -
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
- Proverbs 14:30 -
It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do it in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the Gospel.
- Philipians 1:15-16 -
If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of out Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
- 1 Timothy 6:3-5 -
At one time we were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
- Titus 3:3-7 -
But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.

For where you have envy or selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocracy, envy, and slander of every kind.
