Are You Jealous?

Ah...the pangs of jealousy. At some point in our lives we've shot those darts of jealousy or received them in the back a few times but...consider the following:

Why do you want green eyes?
What makes them so unique?
Why do they turn heads
When they come prancing down the street?
Green eyes are very pretty
Till they meet some others greener
Then those green eyes that you meet
Can suddenly get meaner!
Those green eyes start to envy
What you have and what they don't
You pray that they get nicer
But without it they just won't
Those green eyes become a monster
Piercing right into the heart
Taking out the greener ones
Just ripping them apart.
Why do you want green eyes?
What makes them so impressive?
Those green eyes sure are pretty
Until they get possessive!
~Odetta Li

22 The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!   Matthew 6:22-23
Here's a link to a cool Christian woman's blog posting about jealousy---the green eyed monster.
