Envy is one vice that everybody has experienced. The story is told in of a monk whom several demons of hell desired to tempt.
It seemed to them that a big church would swell his heart with pride. But it did not.
Their next strategy was lust. They sent a gorgeous woman his way; however, that temptation was not successful.
Satan watched their failure with bemusement. He used it as an opportunity to teach those demons a lesson. He informed them, “Permit me to show you how it is done.”
He whispered to the monk, “Your brother was just made Bishop of Alexandria.” Immediately, a cloud of envy transformed the monk’s face.
“That is what I recommend,” the Devil told the demons.
James was well aware of the work of the devil. He writes, “For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.”(James 3:16.) ESV
Let's rid ourselves of envy.
