Matthew 21: 33-43,45-46

Why is it so difficult to rejoice over the good fortune of others? Why do we waste so much time comparing what we have to what others have? When we are little, we whine about it; as we get older, we bury the feeling and give in to jealousy. The only remedy to jealousy is to stop comparing our life to the lives of others. We waste too much energy on what others have and nowhere near enough time enjoying what we have.
