You may have read this in the news this week.
A 4-year-old boy wanted some candy hopped into his
great-grandfather’s SUV. Along the mile-and-a-half journey, with eyes barely
able to see over the steering wheel, Sebastian cruised the neighborhood streets
before making a left turn onto a busy four-lane. He took out some mailboxes and
did some damage to a tree. But in the end, he arrived at the candy store just
in time to be greeted by the police.
I like stories like that. Until I think about what might
have happened. And then, I kind of agree with the great-grandfather.
It could’ve been very serious.
He could’ve hit a car.
He wasn’t wearing a seat belt.
We could be talking about a funeral.
A car in the hands of a child is a scary thing.
It’s a dangerous thing.
In this podcast, I suggest to you that we allow something of
that dangerous level in our lives – something that can kill.
That “something” is envy.
If we respond correctly to God’s word, we can transition from envy to contentment.
