Tuesday's Quote of the Week "Envy"

Tuesday's Quote of the week:

"Envy is a disease.
Stop envying what another person has or their abilities.
You only see the end product not the challenges and hardships to attain it.
Instead, remember you did not even know about it until you saw what they had.
The best way to enjoy your life is to stop comparing it to others and wanting what they have.
Learning to not envy someone else's blessing is what GRACE looks like."

Envy kills many dreams when we chase other people's goals instead of our own.  Stop it!  It will not serve you in any way and will leave you empty.  Instead, focus on what makes you happy. Follow that through and that home, car or whatever your heart's desire will come to fruition. 

Share this post with your friends and family. Do you have a quote that has helped you? If so, leave me a comment and I may use it in a future post.


  1. This is so very true. Why is it so hard for people to be happy for other people? Jealousy always comes into play.

  2. envy is truly the killer of happiness. If you are not happy with yourself than you will be forever jealous

  3. This is definitely important to think about. I think when you're able to live in the moment you end up being less envious and worried about what you don't have.

  4. Great words. I find women, especially have a hard time with envy.

  5. I agree that envy has disease like results. I have personally seen the outcome of what it can do.

  6. I don't truly envy anyone. I like a good number of different quotes but cannot say that any one has helped me more than another.

  7. This is so true! Some time during one of my dark seasons, envy was huge! (husband's infidelity) and it brought so much darkness in my life! I started going back to church and learned to have grace and to give grace. Helped me out a lot! Such a thought provoking message!

  8. Envy is a horrible thing for sure. It cripples you from going after your dreams and goals because you are too busy looking at what everyone else have.
