Part of the Deadly Sins; Life Giving Savior series, preached at a Sunday Morning service


Job 5:2 (Listen)

  Surely vexation kills the fool,
    and jealousy slays the simple.


Proverbs 14:30 (Listen)

30   A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh,
    but envy makes the bones rot.


Proverbs 23:17 (Listen)

17   Let not your heart envy sinners,
    but continue in the fear of the LORD all the day.


Proverbs 24:1–2 (Listen)

24:1   Be not envious of evil men,
    nor desire to be with them,
  for their hearts devise violence,
    and their lips talk of trouble.


Ecclesiastes 4:4 (Listen)

Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man's envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.


Mark 7:21–23 (Listen)

21 For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, 22 coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”


Romans 1:28–29 (Listen)

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips,


Galatians 5:19–21 (Listen)

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
