Galatians 5:26

Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.


That word conceited means "to glory without reason." And that is something to keep in mind as we draw closer to Christ. Anything that we do has nothing to do with ourselves. Therefore we have no reason to boast.

  1. If we only focus on earthly accomplishments then we will only be able to envy those that have more than us, but if we are focused on Christ then we can be thankful for what we have and thankful for the blessings God had bestowed on others.
