Selah: "to pause and consider"

      …to encourage, exhort, and edify

Cyprian of Carthage

To be jealous of what you see to be good and to be envious of those who are better than yourself seems in the eyes of some people only a slight, petty wrong. Being thought a trifle of small account, this sin isn't feared. Not being feared, it's not taken seriously. And not taken seriously, it's not readily shunned. In this way it becomes a dark and hidden mischief. Since the prudent don't see it as something to guard against, it can secretly trouble the minds of those who don't take sufficient precautions against it.


Prepared for Apr 23, 2019 with prayer that this thought will stimulate thinking about Jesus and His Kingdom
