“But I want it!” “Everyone has one but me.” “Just this one time!” We have all wanted, asked, and begged for more. Although all of the “deadly sins” apply to our everyday struggles, envy seems to be the one that affects all people regardless of age or economic situation. From the time we are little, we want more of what we have and we want what others have as well. The Bible calls this coveting.
Envy is a sin that many of us battle, especially me. However, I am encouraged to dive into scripture with you this morning and gain some new armor to battle it! The Bible offers us a secret weapon to battle this very common, and widely accepted sin.
