You ever wondered why it seems like those who deny God “prosper” more so than those who do? Read Psalm 73.
I use to think about this a lot and from time to time that evil spirit of envy tries to creep into my thoughts. But as the psalmist writes •
Those who hate You and live for themselves “are like a dream when one awakes. And when you arise Lord, you will despise them as fantasies.”
Why do we envy temporary treasures or “success” that others obtain?
Children of Christ are the wealthiest on this earth. We have the only treasure that will not fade with time. And it should move us NOT to envy others but to have compassion towards them and to tell them about Christ. So that they too may experience the everlasting treasure.
“You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory…. my flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
