TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE: Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:4, “Love does not envy.”

A number of years ago I learned of a new church across town. A friend came to me with this report: “The church is great. It’s bursting at the seams—the largest one in town.” A more spiritual Max would have rejoiced. A more mature Max would have thanked God. But the Max who heard the report didn’t act mature or spiritual. He acted jealous.

Rather than celebrate God’s work, I was obsessed with my own. I wanted our church to be the biggest. Sickening. In a profound moment of conviction, he let me know that the church is his church, not mine. The work is his work, not mine. And my life is his life, not mine. My job wasn’t to question him, but to trust him. The cure for jealousy? Trust!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR OF THIS DEVOTIONAL: Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and best-selling author who, in his own words, “writes books for people who don’t read books.” He serves the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and his message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him.

As a writer, Max is known for combining poetic storytelling and homespun humor with the heart of a pastor. All of his trade books began as sermon series at Oak Hills Church, and his sermons all begin with Max asking himself this question: “What can I say on Sunday that will still matter on Monday?” He’s been dubbed “America’s Pastor” by Christianity Today, and “The Best Preacher in America” by Reader’s Digest.
