Charity – Kind, Envieth Not

As we examine the attributes of agape love, we see that charity is kind and envies not. There is nothing more against our sinful nature than just to simply be kind to others. We desire to elevate ourselves above others, and if we are offended we feel justified to be ugly in return. Also, charity will lead us to humility to not envy others. In our nature, we desire and covet what others have, but God’s Spirit and charity will guide us to mortify envy of our neighbors.
