Do you use the terms jealousy and envy interchangeably? Most people do, but these are separate concepts. Envy is covetousness of something belonging to someone else. Jealousy is possessiveness of something belonging to you. Can envy ever be good? It implies a lack of contentment with what is already yours, and learning contentment will be easier for you than obtaining an endless sequence of acquisitions that do not satisfy you. Is jealousy ever justifiable? You refer to me as a jealous God rather than an envious God and this statement reflects a correct usage of the terms. I don’t want your stuff. I want you.
