I came across the following portion of scripture two times in the past week ? in two different Bibles. It is about living our lives in the spirit, where we can find the most contentment and joy. I know that there are often reasons we have certain portions of Scripture cross our paths. It spoke to my heart and I pray it speaks to yours as you read today. ?.?.?. live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

In my last column, I wrote about how jealousy had no place in the body of Christ. I also addressed how most of us have been either the victim or villain in regard to jealousy at one time or another. Today I want to continue that thought. In I Corinthians 3:3, Scripture tells us, "You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?" Many of us would say that we do not want to remain mere men and women, but rather blossom into men and women of God. Our aim should be to reach godly potential, not jealousy's potential.

When I went to film school at Cal State Northridge in the previous century, before the great quake that brought much-needed renovation and finances to the facilities, we had a professor older than dirt who taught directing to a group of eager young fortune seekers each semester. In film school, students believe they already know everything. So, when this wizened man, Sid Salkow, doled out the wisdom he’d gathered over his highly successful career directing movies and TV shows in the generation before we were born, he didn’t always get our rapt attention.
