Is it difficult for you to see other people happy and enjoying their lives? It is common for people to struggle with jealousy or wanting what other people have. However, envy goes a step further than jealousy. Fr. Josh explains what envy is and how we can overcome it.

Glory Story (1:15)
Listener Question (3:43)

I really struggle with comparing my life to other people. I even get upset about other people’s situations and place in life. Seeing other people happy can make me angry. How can I be more grateful?

Saint Story: St. Stephen (16:58)

St. Stephen was the first martyr in Christianity. He was also one of the first deacons. Prior to becoming Christian, St. Stephen was a Hellinist or Greek-speaking Jew. One of the great witnesses of St. Stephen was the forgiveness he showed to those who stoned him to death.
