BE HAPPY FOR OTHERS

“Are you envious because I am generous?” – Matthew 20:15

People are never satisfied with what they have. Those who are dark bleach themselves while fair ones go sunbathing. Those with curly hair get rebonds and those with straight hair get perms.
We are not satisfied with what we have because we compare ourselves with others.
I remember a classmate of ours named Jello, who used to be jealous of just about anything — from others’ looks down to the minutest details of life. She always had something to complain about — her dress, her grades, the teachers, etc.
She was the exact opposite of Adora, another classmate of ours, who was very easy to please. Of course, between them, we preferred to go with Adora as we found her adorable. (Ah, maybe that’s the reason why she’s named Adora, and Jello for jealousy.)
Years have passed since our graduation. During our reunion, we were quite surprised at how Jello has become the lady she was not. We later learned that she has joined a prayer community and has been very active since then. And that spelled the difference. Dr. Henry Yu (henrio_md@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
It is exhausting to be human sometimes because we’re never satisfied with anything. For always, we would want to have everything.

Lord, help us to accept and be happy with what we are and with what we have and never be envious of others. Grant us to be happy for others.
