Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. Galatians 6:4 (NLT)

When we envy others, we don’t focus on our own responsibilities and will eventually have an empty heart. The opposite of envy is contentment. When we are content with our responsibilities, our gifts, our blessings, we can remain focused on fulfilling our responsibilities, using our gifts, and appreciating our blessings. This keeps us in God’s will and leads to continued spiritual growth.
