Karol Markowicz is a columnist for the New York Post. Recently, she wrote a piece titled, “America’s ugly epidemic of social media envy.” She begins with a provocative question: “When did envy become OK?” She concludes with a damning observation about our culture: “Never before have so many had so much while still wanting more.”

 

Does that describe you? Has the green-eyed monster slain you? As you scroll through your social media feeds, do you snark on someone’s great seats at the ballgame or roll your eyes in jealousy when they post pictures from their exotic travel experience?

 

How do we defeat this deadly sin called envy? For starters, give thanks to God for what He has given you and learn contentment.
