It's easy to see others that are more successful, have more money, and want it for ourselves. To a point it can motivate us to work harder, push ourselves to the next level. But it can easily fall into the realm of jealousy.
Even when we are envious of another person, there's wanting what they have, and then there's not wanting another person to have it. Maybe it's a movie star or athlete, but sometimes we develop a resentment for their possessions. Who are they to have that much money? What makes them special to have so much success? They don't deserve it.
Only, we don't see what it's taken to achieve their success. We don't see all the sacrifice and hardships that come along with their lifestyle. There is also no telling how much those successful people give to others. They may give millions, 50, 60 or 80 percent of their income to charity and to help those in need. Who are we to judge intention? And would we be as charitable if we shared their success?
"Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord." - Matthew 25:23 (NKJV)
