Urban Decay in green? Yes! Don’t you know that green compliments brown eyes and enhances them if they are any other color. Never wore green eyeshadow before huh? This may take you by surprise, but you have!
We all have one time or another. It’s called envy, also known as “The Green Eyed Monster.” Similar to jealousy but different in that when you envy not only do you want what the other person has but you carry feelings of ill will toward them. It can make you do crazy things! It made Jesus the target of the religious leaders and David the target of Saul.
Why is envy and jealousy known as “The Green Eyed Monster” anyway? Well it was believed that when a person was filled with envy and covetousness, their body produced more green bile. This would then change their complexion making them look sickly. So when your envious you kind of look like this chic.
Proverbs 14:30 says – A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
When you are envious it truly is like decay in your inner man, and your countenance really does change. So get a make over and remove that Urban Decay “green eyeshadow” and put on this really great “eyeshadow” called contentment.
You can find contentment in the godliness aisle. (1st Timothy 6:6)
