WOEAIHF is Rick Warren’s “What On Earth Am I Here For?” book.

Day 41: The Envy Trap

Rick created this and the next chapter as the great reminder of what can weaken a maturing Christian. I am grateful that envying doesn’t stumble me because I am happy and appreciative of the success and happiness of other people. I’ve known for a while now that we are each unique and yet connected in the bigger picture.

Rick was right validating that we must honor our life’s purpose, “To attempt to be what you weren’t created to be always lead to frustration, fatigue, and failure.” And yet, there are moments that we like what we don’t have and when there’s bitterness and bad intentions then it fall into sins. Rick has written a powerful statement when he said, “The worst part of envy is that it’s an insult to God!” God never made a mistake in creating each of us, each one is a masterpiece.

God says such comparisons are foolish. Because you are incomparable! Life on earth is unfair because of sin, not because of God.
