“But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked” (Psalm 73:2-3).
It is easy to envy the wicked who prosper with fame and money. Yet what does prosperity and worldly fame compare to an eternity in Heaven? The riches of this life cannot compare to an eternal life in Heaven with our Heavenly Father.
This life is as closest many people will get to Heaven. We should not envy the wicked, but feel sorry for them. They have nothing to look forward to when they die. We should continue to pray for lost souls.
Let us not envy the wicked, but reassure ourselves of our future in Heaven. Let us live for God with a generous heart of love for Jesus and the great sacrifice He made to bring us salvation.
