Jealousy has no place in those who do the work of the Lord. Its presence highlights the fact that the one who is jealous is more concerned with himself than with the Gospel. Being the object of jealousy, especially of those in power, can create fear. Paul and Barnabas, however, in such a situation continued to speak the word of God fearlessly. Ask for the grace to do likewise.
