Acts 17:5 But other Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason’s house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd.

Be careful of Jealousy.

Jealousy can make you the odd one out. Everyone else can be happy but jealousy means you are not one of them.

Jealousy can leave you needing to make plans for pain. Jealous people do not necessarily know they are jealous and their plans are often seen as just but they bring hurt.

Jealousy can direct you to mix with people you wouldn’t normally be with. Jealousy blinds character.

Jealousy doesn’t mind how much damage it does. The more damage the better because it reflects on the riot within the heart.

Jealousy makes you react quickly. In a short time they had formed a mob, started a riot and rounded up the accused.

You won’t be affected by all of the above but we all get jealous at some point in our lives and it would be good to protect yourself from the above.
