Look at me, O God, and deal with my jealousy.
I confess there are times
when I would rather your work not done
than to see another do it better
than I could perform it.
Forgive me, loving God,
and dispossess me of this evil demon.
Please give me humility to learn from others,
not to conceitedly outshine them
but to see more of your will done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
For you name’s sake.
- Thomas Fuller 1608-1661AD
