Against Envy

Lord, do not allow me
To be too firmly attached to this earth
That I should fall in love and crave
For too many things.
Guard me from a jealous eye,
An envious heart.
Save me from the tyranny of possessions-
Mature me in the choices that I make.
Control my desires for earthly satisfactions.
Give me the courage to be content.
Keep me back from wanting.
Hold me back from taking.
Lead me to find a balance
Of moderation and a zest for living.

Bible Inspiration: Luke 12:15
Be on your guard and avoid every kind of greed for though you have many possessions your life doesn’t depend on them.

    Sometimes we feel we have worked too hard to remain where we are and we feel bad when we see a green horn doing better….it take the holy spirit to take one away from that mind set and remind one that our God is all we need and all that matters.
