Jealousy and True Love

Psalm 31:23

"Love the LORD, all his faithful people! The LORD preserves those who are true to him, but the proud he pays back in full."

Love is something that is not jealous.  Furthermore, jealousy is about fear and about coveting.  I guess.  I am trying to be wise.  Furthermore, I am trying to be right about the interpretation of God's Word.  One of the worst thing anyone can do is to misinterpret scripture.  That I believe is why false prophets and false teachers are flourishing in the planet.  They deceive the flock by twisting the Word of God for often times financial gain.  Where is the love in deception, much less jealousy?  The only jealousy that is not about fear and coveting is about the Jealousy of God.  We are to not just be true, but to love God with all of our hearts, souls, minds, and strengths.  All of it.  God is a Jealous God who wants us to divide all of our attentions to Him.  After all, Jesus paid all of His attention to us. That is what I finally realize today.  We as Christians are to be Jealous for the Lord, because He is Jealous towards us.  That is what true love is all about.
