How does resentment appear? It usually results from a comparison. Cain had an acceptable offering to the Lord, but resentment caught him when he compared his with that of Abel. Meanwhile, those close to us, our neighbors, are often the objects we compare to. In other words, the Lord calls us to love our neighbors, but comparison brings resentment between us. David and Saul are another example of comparison. “Saul became very angry. “What’s this?” he said. “They credit David with ten thousand and me with only thousands. Next, they’ll be making him their kings! – 1 Samuel 18:8.”
