everything we have comes from heaven: envy is unnecessary

A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. John 3:27

Nobody has anything unless they got it from God. All our gifts, talents, abilities, and blessings come from God. Whether we pervert, or corrupt our talents or not, it came from God anyway.
Don’t be jealous of what others have, praise God for what others have, and bear consistent fruit with what YOU have. You will be rewarded for YOUR work, not for your fandom or for your envy of others’ work.
