BE HAPPY . . . . . Acts 13:42-45 The Jewish leaders brought theological argument against Paul and Barnabas, but the Bible tells us that the real reason for their denunciation was that they were jealous. When we see other succeeding where we haven’t or receiving the glory that we want, it is hard to be happy for them. Jealousy is our natural reaction. But it is tragic when our own jealous feelings make us try to stop God’s work. If a work is God’s work, rejoice it it—no matter who is doing it.
