Envy – the desire to have something that is possessed by another. This is the sixth of the seven deadly sins. In my opinion the nastiest sin. People who suffer from envy can be dangerous.

so the green-eyed monster struts his stuff. shudder.
That's so true. When I think about it nearly every sin is one of some kind of envy. Envy sounds so harmless but when we get down to the actions of envy, it is very savage and amoral. Thanks for bringing it to my attention Cat
I might take it a step further by adding that people suffering from any of the seven deadly sins are dangerous, in a manner unique to that sin.
thanks again guys – the thing about envy though is that the envious person hurts others. With the other sins you are more likely to be hurting yourself. Except wrath of course (but they probably deserved it).
