Women are phenomenal people. They really are. That's not to say that I really ever understood one of them, but they are phenomenal people. But I'll tell you one thing - they sure don't have the same nature as a man.

Take a man noticing another man, for instance. If a man sees another man whose built really well - you know, like Arnold Schwarzenegger - he thinks, Wow. Look at that guy! He's huge. He must work out all day long. I wish I were big like that. Shoot, if I had muscles like that...Man, just look at how built that guy is!

Now women are not like that. A woman will see another woman who's got a good figure - you know, real good, shapely figure. And they don't just think something about it; they say it to whomever is with them: "Look at her. Just who does she think she is, walking around strutting like that? I wouldn't wear that. She's just trying to get everybody's attention."

You know what I'm talking about! Any man who's ever walked through the mall with a woman knows what I'm talking about!

But it's important for us to notice other people's good points and not be upset by them. Now, I'm not saying men are better than women or women are better than men, but being irritated over someone else's good qualities isn't good at all. If you look at someone else and get angry because of what you see, check your heart for envy.

It could be that the person has a nice body, a nice car, a nice house, or maybe they're just plain nice. But no matter what they have that you don't, don't let yourself fall into a state of envy. Envy is a sin. That's why one of the Ten Commandments is Thou shalt not covet (Ex. 20:17). And God put that in the Bible for a reason.

Remember, God will bless you when you put His principles to work, regardless of what area you choose to work on in your life. He will honor your faith and commitment! So, don't be envious of another's good points. It just may be that they've been working on that area for long, long time.
