Love…does not envy

Do you burn with the zeal to be “better” than someone else? Love does not envy the attention someone else may receive. Does it ever rub you the wrong way when someone else is publicly honored and you’re not? True love is not jealous of what someone else may have or do; love genuinely delights in others blessings.

We can all be grateful that Jesus Christ does not grasp at His own glory but lovingly and willingly shares Himself. “And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them” (John 17:10). “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:” (John 17:22). Jesus Christ is not consumed with self-exaltation—He willingly gave His life just for YOU!
