This week we are talking about the ugly sin of JEALOUSY and all the ways it threatens to hurt our relationships and rob us of peace and joy in our lives. Women especially are vulnerable to this sin because we notice all the details about ourselves and others. Some steps I recommend to overcome jealously:

1. Discover why you are vulnerable.
What’s going on with you? Are you tired, stressed, feeling unappreciated? Get to the source of your current weakness and you can better avoid the temptation toward jealousy.

2. Find out what lie you are believing.
Do you feel unworthy? Do you believe God does not love you? Do you think that God can “run out” of love and blessings? Get to the heart of what false things you are believing about God and yourself in order to fix your perspective on the blessings God gives other people.

3. Address it.
Once you recognize jealousy, it’s important to address it. This can happen in confession, which is a great way to get the graces you need to overcome temptation. But this can also happen in heart-to-heart talks with a trusted friend or your husband. Acknowledge the sin of jealousy and you will take away some of its power over you. Also, we can address jealousy in our own spiritual lives by working directly against it, by praying for those we are tempted to be jealous of. This is a difficult practice, but well worth it in the benefits you can gain from it.

We talk this week with the lovely Kara Klein, member of the music group His Own. Kara shares so beautifully about her music and ministry, as well as her struggles as a young single woman in the church. You will love all that she shares!
