Ron: I think jealousy is common.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Whenever someone or something holds a position you’d like to have, you’re jealous of it. Your spouse prizes their work more than time with you—you’re jealous. Your friend obsesses about their pet—you’re jealous of a dog. What we often label as a child “who just wants attention” is a child who is jealous for you.

See, what’s behind jealousy is a desire to matter, to be close to someone. That’s good. But jealous actions according to James 3 & 4 in the Bible, usually lead to division, fights, and quarrels. The answer, James says, “Don’t speak evil of others and trust God with your desires. Not your ability to get what you want.” For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
