Unhappy

Today's reading: Acts 5:17-42

The Jewish leaders are UNHAPPY about the apostles preaching and spreading the Gospel message of Christ. They were jealous. And when their efforts to silence the apostles fails and Peter then candidly addresses them about being responsible for killing Jesus whom God has exalted as "Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins" (vs. 31), the council is outraged. The jealousy factor intensifies to the point that this group of Jewish leaders actually wants to kill the apostles (vs. 33).

What did you notice about jealousy from this passage? What are some of the emotions connected to being jealous? What does this account reveal about the influence jealous thoughts and feelings have on our judgment and reasoning? Tami
