I never realized how prevalent envy is in the Christian’s life until reading this story. I never realized what virtue is needed to overcome this destructive sin. But this story is much more than a lesson about envy; it reaches into the depths of the human heart and teaches the truths of that obscure pas- sage of Scripture: “The kingdom of God in the heart cometh not with observation...for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” When you come face to face with this truth, you will see people with a different and most merciful eye.
This story is a trophy. You will be ushered into a child’s world, which will be of great benefit to you. You will embark upon a voyage that will take you quite by surprise.
