The last phrase is telling, “You follow Me!”
When we put all this together, the reality of envy, at least for me, is that I do not trust God that what He wants me to do, the lot He has given me in life, is really all that good. Like Peter, I am kind of looking at the other guy thinking he got a better slice of the pie. It boils down to I do not believe God knows how to engage me and the gifts that He has given me most effectively. It is really immaterial that He created me in my mother’s womb, chose men for a specific purpose before the foundation of the world, and has gifted me and prepared me through all of my life for that purpose. I am sure He has not used me as effectively as He should.
