With Christmas right around the corner, we will all be involved in both the giving and receiving of gifts. You will give others gifts that they are going to be thrilled about. While others may receive gifts that you wished were for you. Jealousy and envy is something that's a constant battle in our culture. How come they got that? How come that happened for them? How come they get to go there? I think these are questions everyone asks themselves from time to time. In a culture that's always into bigger and better, sometimes we can lose sight of those things that are precious. This Christmas, when others get things you could only dream of getting, choose to rejoice with them. Don't allow jealousy to worm its way in. When others get to go places you'd love to go, rejoice with them. When others seem to be blessed like crazy, rejoice with them :) If you don't rejoice with them, you open the door to resentment, frustration, a victim mentality and a whole host of other junk. Rejoice with what others are blessed with and never stop being thankful for everything you've been blessed with :) You have a lot to be thankful for and rejoice about. Don't allow jealousy and envy to ruin the season.
