the grass isn't greener

Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man's envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.

Ecclesiastes 4:4

They color envy green money my neighbor's yard a manicured country club

I think I know what they mean

...more cash

...keep up with the Jones's

...prestige in what I own

But money is good clothes the cold

...feeding hungry kids

...saving lives with medicine

Motives can be bad

...driven by greed

...dominant selfish need

...ignoring others that I see

Unhappiness results

...when envy and greed

...override holier views

...materialism is cruel

Contentment is achieved

...with godliness joined eternal commitments's just equipment
