Antler Envy

Dear Friends of Lumen,

“As a moth gnaws a garment, so doth envy consume a [person].” St. John Chrysostom

Don’t waste time and energy being envious of things that in the big picture really do not matter: good looks, material possessions, attractive personalities, etc… Rather, focus on the higher gifts, the deep virtues of others, and try to learn from them and imitate them, instead of trying to bring that person down!

God bless,
