Today's Verse: Psalm 37:1-2 (KJV)

Tuesday, March 2, 2021

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
— Psalm 37:1-2 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Frustration and envy... hmmm, isn't that our reaction to those who are evil and yet seem to prosper? We're reminded not to let the apparent and short-lived successes of evil people derail our faith or dampen our spirits. Their victories are temporary, their wealth is like a flower that will wilt, and their life is like the grass which withers and is soon gone.

My Prayer...

LORD God Almighty, praise your holy and matchless name. You have blessed me mightily. You have protected me in the face of my enemies. You have given me life, and hope, and future with you. Now please, dear Father, help me to avoid wasting my time worrying about what others have. Please give me a heart of thanksgiving for, and contentment with, all that you have done to bless me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
