Envy [v.8] is a strong feeling. It can lead to hatred and murder. Remember Cain? Coming to God to ask about something and then upon hearing the answer, walking away. Not just walking away but walking away sad. [LUK 18:18 – 30] The emptiness will be greater walking away from the question than walking toward the answer. Being familiar with God [v.21] is not enough. God does not convince me but does expose me [v.23]. When I lack compassion I show that I am imprisoned in the law. The rich man’s wealth made him poor.
