🟥 Take Action
Clarify (Galatians 5:13, Philippians 4:11-12)
How are we intentional about seeking contentment?
Organize (Ephesians 4:29, Colossians 3:9-10)
What are we thinking about and how does it hold up to the truth of God’s Word?
Prepare (Matthew 11:28-30, John 15:13, Ephesians 2:8)
Who sees our remorse for our sins? Are we motivated to save face or submit to Christ by behaving with a godly character and repentant heart?
🟥 The dictionary defines Envy as a desire to have a quality, possession, or other desirable attribute belonging to (someone else)

“Envy finds socially acceptable ways of expressing personal resentment.”~ Charles Swindoll
Theologian Thomas Lea’s Five Dangers for People who Live Without God:
- Life without God stifles the prayer life.
- It makes them a friend of the world and an enemy of God.
- They neglect God’s will in their lives.
- Rebelling against God produces insult and slander of fellow believers.
- It produces people who plan their lives without seeking God.
What Can You Do?
Challenge the adversary’s lies by asking God to clarify His plan. We have the Creator’s likeness. We’ve had it since God molded and breathed life into Adam and took Adam’s rib to create Eve. Remember who you are in Christ and the purpose for which He made you. ~Torrie Slaughter
