AS A BELIEVER DO YOU HAVE A JEALOUS AMBITION? DO YOU ENVY OTHERS? IS YOUR HEART IN THE RIGHT PLACE WITH OTHERS? James 3:14-16 ESV
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
Proverbs 14:30 ESV
A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.
Philippians 2:3 ESV
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
1 Corinthians 13:4 ESV
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant.
Galatians 5:19-21 ESV
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Proverbs 27:4 ESV
Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy?
1 Corinthians 13:1-13 ESV
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
1 Corinthians 3:3 ESV
For you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Song of Solomon 8:6 ESV
Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord.
James 4:7 ESV
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Ecclesiastes 4:4 ESV
Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man’s envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.

And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
