There are sins in our lives that are easily covered up, and these sins will most definitely hurt the cause of Christ today more than anything else. These sins are everywhere! We take them with us to work, to school, to breakfast, lunch and dinner. They cling to us like a tic on a dog or mud on a pig!
The two sins I’m talking about are envy and jealousy. How many preachers are jealous of another preacher? How many soloist are envious of another soloists? A great deal of gossip goes on in the church and out of church because of these two sins that are so easy to cover up!
Envy and jealousy have been around since the beginning. That’s why Cain killed his brother Abel! I John 3:12 says, ” Not of Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brothers were righteous!
