Jealousy is an evil

 

Not long ago, I presented a reflection on radio on jealousy. This is what a listener sent to me:

“It was because of jealousy that Cain killed Abel. In Shakespeare’s play ‘Cenderila’ it was because of jealousy that the sisters kept Cenderila in slavery in the kitchen.  They were aware that she was more charming and more beautiful than them, and so were determined not to let others see her.”

He added:

Jealousy is the “excessive  fear of a rival. It is born of envy at the excellence of others. Its causes are pride; the desire to be first all the times; it is idleness; hatred; and the inability to agree with others.”

Jealousy is a destructive emotion. It cause many problems in society. What else can you say about jealousy?
