Love Does Not

Love does not envy.

Envy is not a small thing.

It is a cancer in the soul destroying peace, and joy by replacing them with discontent and desire to have what someone else has.

Envy is evil, love is Holy.

Love does not need to envy anything anyone else has because agape love has everything it needs within itself.

The Passion Translation which translates the verses from the Arabic put it like this, “It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. 1 Corinthians 13:4b TPT

Love has no need to boast or live in the prison of pride that shouts through the bars, “Look at me, look at what I have, what I have done, who I am! I am valuable, lovable and important!”

Love opens the door to the prison of pride with the keys of sacrifice and truth, inviting the prisoner to live in the freedom of God’s truth which is, “As God’s child, you are valuable whether have anything or not, loved whether you succeed or fail, important because you are Mine. My beloved child. I will take care you always.”

  1. Great post, Cindy. It is very appropriate for me today. I especially liked your expression of God’s truth where you said, “As God’s child, you are valuable whether have anything or not, loved whether you succeed or fail, important because you are Mine. My beloved child.”
