Over the past several weeks I have encountered two people who really are PREOCCUPIED. The unfortunate thing is that they are spending all of their thinking on things that they don’t have.
The definition of “preoccupied” is simply distracted.
When we become preoccupied with possessions, accolades, or new jobs we stop safeguarding ourselves against dangerous emotional conditions. Those include envy and bitterness.
When preoccupation overtakes gratitude a downward spiral in our attitudes because of envy is sure to follow. The prescription has to be a focus on the many gifts we already have. Just taking five minutes a day to focus on the gifts in your life can be powerful and create inner peace.
Proverbs 14: 29-35
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
