There are basically two kinds of jealousy, being jealous OF something or someone (wanting what belongs to someone else) and being jealous FOR something or someone (being possessive of what is yours). Instead of being covetous and selfish, God wants us to be thankful and generous with what’s ours. Jealousy is usually a sin, but did you know that there is a good kind of selfishness? The Bible even says that God is jealous! Just like a husband should not be “generous” and let some other guy kiss his wife, God is jealous for our good. He wants what’s best for us and He knows that He is what’s best for us. Jealousy is often wrong, but Godly jealousy is a very good thing!
