Nancy Leigh DeMoss: First Corinthians 13 is known as, “The Love Chapter” in the Bible. It gives us characteristics of genuine love. One of those is: “Love does not envy.” Let’s dig a little deeper into what that means.
When you truly love, you’re content with the basic necessities of life—you hold everything else loosely. When you truly love, you realize that you have an amazing gift—a right relationship with God. What more do you really need?
This kind of love helps you to be thankful when you do get something new. And this kind of love protects you from getting angry with a friend who gets a new set of living room furniture or a raise at work.
Have you put your faith in Christ to take away your sin and bring you into a right relationship with God? That’s the first step in having true love—the kind that doesn’t envy.
