How do you feel when someone in your class makes a better grade than you? Or someone else wins the prize you yourself tried so hard to win? Be careful, jealousy is just waiting to come into your heart!
God's Word says in Galatians 5:26, "Let us not be envying one another." What is envying? Well, it is jealousy on the inside because of good things that happen to other people.
If you are a child of God, when you begin to feel that jealousy, there are three things you can remember to do to guard your heart against jealousy.
No.1, you can remember the Bible verse we are learning today. Let's say it together now: Galatians 5:26, "Let us not be envying one another." That is the first step.
The next step is to pray, asking God to take that jealousy out of your heart, and put His love in your heart for that person.
No.3, you can say something kind to that person to help you get over that jealousy. Be on guard against that jealousy!
Sing:Someone has a prettier dress。Someone makes a better grade,Someone looks much nicer than me,Teacher likes them best I see.
Oh, Oh, jealousy, jealousy,Guard your heart against that jealousy.Oh that ugly jealousy,What a monster it can be,Run to Jesus, say a prayer; Ask Him to put His love there.Oh, Oh, jealousy, jealousy,Guard your heart against that jealousy.Don't forget those three important steps.
