Tilly Dillehay on How Envy Affects Our Friendships

Each week this season on By Faith, I’m talking with a guest about the ins and outs of friendship. As I wrote about in my book Messy Beautiful Friendship, friendship isn’t easy for anyone; it takes time, intentionality, and lots of grace. And sometimes we have to navigate complexities and hurts in friendship that leave us uncertain and crushed. I’m right there with you, and my guests are here to help us think through it all.

Today I’ve invited Tilly Dillehay onto to the show to talk about envy and how it affects our friendships. I didn’t previously know Tilly but as we started talking, God used her words to convict me of envy in one of my own relationships, which I confessed to that friend the very next day and has brought so much freedom in my life in an area where I’ve been struggling the past few months. So I personally am so thankful to have had this conversation and am happy to get to introduce Tilly to you.

Tilly is a pastor’s wife, living in rural Tennessee, so rural in fact that we had a few internet connection issues that you may notice in terms of audio quality. Tilly shares with me how she came to faith in Christ from agnoticism, about her years long struggle with envy in a specific relationship, and about how she learned to diagnose and confess envy. Tilly’s written a new book that I’m currently reading and am loving called, Seeing Green: Don’t Let Envy Color Your World. You'll definitely want to pick up a copy of this book after listening.

Listen to my conversation with Tilly on iTunes or, if you're on my website, in the embedded player below. Enjoy!
