Notes:
“When envy does not get what it wants, it often causes depression and despair.” Never thought it like this before.

Quote from Tim Challies, quoting Spurgeon about envy.

“What’s the cure for envy? I can’t say it better than Charles Spurgeon: “The cure for envy lies in living under a constant sense of the divine presence, worshiping God and communing with Him all the day long, however long the day may seem. True religion lifts the soul into a higher region, where the judgment becomes more clear and the desires are more elevated. The more of heaven there is in our lives, the less of earth we shall covet. The fear of God casts out envy of men.””
