Envy vs Gratitute

 Today's gospel reading: Mt 20: 1-6
Can you sincerely rejoice and be filled with much gratitude at the success of others?  Can you sincerely be grateful to God when others are blessed with the unexpected and unwarranted generosity of others?  If this is a struggle, then at least thank God that you are made aware of this.  Envy is a sin, and it’s a sin that leaves us dissatisfied and sad.  You should be grateful you see it because that is the first step in overcoming it.
Lord, I do sin and I honestly admit I have some envy in my heart.  Thank you for helping me to see this and help me to now surrender that over.  Please replace it with a sincere gratitude for the abundant grace and mercy You bestow on others.  Jesus, I trust in You.

Envy is also one of the biggest thing that I want to defeat, sometimes I can be okay and not feel envious on people and things, but there also also times when this envious feeling can just seep right into me and make me turn green. So much self-reflections have been done in the past months, I wish/hope I will be better on this.
