Stand Firm

Whatever he does prospers. Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Psalm 1:4

Throughout Scripture and throughout history there has always a contrast between good and evil. Entire libraries are filled with books and philosophies trying to solve the problem of evil (mainly “how could a good God permit evil?”). Likewise, there are good and evil people. Other Scriptures warn us not to be seduced by  evil people who enjoy the good life. They seem to get away with everything! It’s not fair. It really isn’t.

Doing the right thing day after day, month after month and year after year seems like it’s getting you nowhere. You don’t cheat. You don’t cook the books. You keep your thoughts pure. You hold your tongue. You’ve become accustomed to it and you’ll always do it that way. It’s probably even a boring routine. Don’t fall for the lie. Don’t be seduced by those who “get ahead” in shady and deceitful ways.

Stand firm in what you know to be true. It is not in vain.
