We should be glad for people that have achieved their life long dream. We do not know what they have been through to get where they are today. We should never be resentful of another’s good fortune or achievement.
If you feel pain at the sight of another’s good fortune or achievement you are not really happy for them. We should as a good christian be happy for everyone’s good fortune. Achievements do not just get handed to one on a silver platter. People work hard for their achievements.
Envy is bad when you are not elated for your friends accomplishments. Envy is good if you have a longing for something and you work hard and earn the item that you have desired. Praise people on their accomplishments and do not resent them.
If you want another person’s possessions think twice about that. Maybe their possessions have weighed them down and consumed their whole life. Owning something does not make you happy. Friends and family make you happy. Possessions wear out and get sold.
If someone you know has a desirable attribute think to yourself how can I become more like them and do not resent them for it. Strive to be the kind of person that God wants you to be. Be helpful, kind, compassionate, caring, loving, peaceful, hopeful,joyful,faithful and a good steward of God every change that you are given.
I am happy when I see someone achieve their life long dream. Reach for the stars that are in the heavens as they will bring you to new heights in your life. Share your good fortunes with others. Use your achievement to benefit mankind.
God is faithful, forgiving and kind to all of mankind. God is overjoyed at all of our accomplishments and achievements in life. God wants his flock to do well on earth and share our accomplishments with others for the benefit of all. Do not be boastful. Give and never expect anything in return. Be gracious and thankful for all of the blessings in your life and pass them along to others.
