Jealousy *Judges 8

Judges 8;NIV
Resentment, jealousy, and envy provoke a fight. A wise person does not boast of his accomplishments. He can ward off any accusations by acknowledging something positive that his accuser has done. This can appease the accuser, which prevents any further trouble.
What it really boils down to is pride. Resentment, jealousy, and envy are all fruit of pride. Pride is ugly. Unfortunately, pride is powerful and can spring up anytime and anyplace without warning. Therefore, we all need to be on guard against this unrelenting sin called pride.
King David wrote in Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Lord, expose those areas in our lives that we have given way to pride. Search our hearts, lead us into repentance, forgive us, clean our hearts, and renew a right spirit within us. Give us wisdom to deal with anyone who comes against us in any form of pride that we would be able to ward off any attack by the accuser. Thank you God for Your Word of life. In Jesus Name. Amen.
