A Good Night’s Rest

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. Psalm 1:6

So ends our jaunt into Psalm 1. It was a “study” of right and wrong, good and evil, wicked and righteous. To be certain, there is good and there is evil. Very few honest people question that. The “post-modernists” might say that truth is relative and that there is no right and wrong. I don’t know that they are living in reality.

There will always be a struggle between the righteous and the wicked as long as man is alive. There is even a constant battle within man regarding good and evil (Romans 7 clearly lays out this struggle). Those who deny that battle are probably giving in too easily. Those who claim they have reached “sinless perfection” every day just might be pulling your leg. The Book of Romans seems to indicate a different struggle (Romans 6-8).

One day, however, there will be an end to the strife, an end to the evil, and an end to the wicked. Until then we can rest in His peace. We can sleep with a clear conscience at night. The wicked probably don’t have such a pleasant night of rest.
