The Fear of the Lord Protects us from Envy
Topic: Wisdom Passage: Proverbs 23:1–23:18
Wanting what belongs to our neighbor reveals we are not trusting God as we should. The greater our focus on God's wisdom the lesser will be our desire for what we think will make us happy. As we grow in our fear of the Lord, our temptations for comparison with others will be reduced and our ultimate joy and trust in God will grow.
