One of the personal goals of mine as a Christian and as an individual with altruistic values is to escape envy. Of course, very few people are self disciplined enough to completely rid themselves of the emotion. Envy is instinctive, going back far before we developed civilizations, and has probably been enhanced by our growing intelligence. But, I choose to be one of the billions of people who actively seek to reduce the harm caused by envy and its offspring, anger (which often leads to murder) and greed (which often leads to corruption). I hope that anyone who reads this will try to do the same.
Hello. Before reading this thread I was always envious of my peers, felt anger which often lead to murder and greed which often lead to corruption. Now I have seen the light. Thank you sir, I am a changed man.
Well, I eat three square (or round, or triangular - I'm not particular) meals of humble pie a day, with an extra serving on Sundays.
I still haven't murdered anybody since I first read this thread.
I am so glad to see that so many people on this thread are striving to improve themselves. Keep working, and eventually you may reach my level. When you do, you will be industrious and clean, never procrastinating, consuming only what you need, free of envy, lacking in unwarranted pride, without lust.
I realize that your journey toward perfection is a long and arduous one, but persevere! I stand before you in all humbleness as a shining beacon of hope, proving to you that it IS possible!
