Although a wicked person who commits a hundred crimes may live a long time, I know that it will go better with those who fear God, who are reverent before him. Ecclesiastes 8:12 NIV
Does it seem sometimes that the world is upside down? Those who seem to break every commandment and yet seem to prosper. They may have wealth and popularity, and the faithful Christian does not. I would rather not be prosperous in the eyes of the world. Those that fear the LORD has something better waiting for them. We need to remember to keep our eyes on Jesus and not on the world around us. This world is temporary – the future with Jesus is forever!
