An angel committed the first sin in the universe that desecrated heaven and later touched the earth. It was the sin of envy and Lucifer was the transgressor. (Ezk.28 and Isa.14) Lucifer a created being wanted God’s position. He fought for it and suffered great loss. His sin was the first example of envy and was accompanied with pride and deception. The third sin was also envy and this time it was committed by Cain, who killed his brother Abel. (Gen.4:1-7)
Envy is a negative desire to wear a shoe size that is bigger than your feet. It is a craving for something or a position of honor without the corresponding godly character that comes with it. A desire to want what someone else has, without paying the price for it. The sin of envy never walks alone. The label it comes with may be envy, but the package contains other sins like lies, jealousy and covetousness, pride and deception.
Discontentment is a state of dissatisfaction in life and it can be positive or negative. It is evil when the dissatisfaction eyes another’s possession or personality. Positive dissatisfaction is good and we need it to experience changes in life. It helps you to move on in life as you make progress from a bachelor to a married person, from a high school student to a university student etc.
