Today I facilitated an interview for a former co-worker of mine for a position I could not be considered for since I an related to someone who works there. It would have been an ideal situation with a substantial pay increase and a good working environment. As sad as that could be my reaction was “if it can’t be me then I want it to be her”.
That’s not always easy to say though. People can get discouraged in life when they try so hard for something and another person gets it easily. Or you were promised something and it was given to someone else. At church one Sunday I heard a message about a similar topic and how we don’t need to be jealous of other people and their successes or relationships as if God blessings are a piece of a pie. Of one is cut out there’s less for everyone else. Instead we need to remind ourselves that God is a river and can constantly provide.
Proverbs 11:25 “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”
