St. John's Franklin Podcast

Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled The Deadly Sin of Envy for The Second Sunday of Lent  on February 24, 2013. During Lent, we are exploring an ancient taxonomy of sin to help us examine our lives, develop a lifestyle of repentance, and experience a fresh and joyous grace in Christ. The deadly sin of Envy hates to see other people happy. It begins by asking: Why should I not enjoy what others enjoy? And it ends by demanding “Why should others enjoy what I cannot? The envious man does not love himself, although he begins with self-love. He is not grateful for, or happy in what he is or what he has. It will not let him live as himself, grateful for his qualities and talents, such as they are, making the best and most rewarding use of them. The sin of envy keeps us from accepting the ordinary parts of ourselves
