1 Don't be upset because of sinful people. Don't be jealous of those who do wrong. 2 Like grass, they will soon dry up. Like green plants, they will soon die. 3 Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live in the land and enjoy its food. 4 Find your delight in the Lord. Then he will give you everything your heart really wants. 5 Commit your life to the Lord. Here is what he will do if you trust in him. 6 He will make your godly ways shine like the dawn. He will make your honest life shine like the sun at noon.7 Be still. Be patient. Wait for the Lord to act. Don't be upset when other people succeed. Don't be upset when they carry out their evil plans. 8 Keep from being angry. Turn away from anger. Don't be upset. That only leads to evil. 9 Sinful people will be cut off from the land. But it will be given to those who put their hope in the Lord. (NIRV)
Does it seem like others benefit from doing what is wrong? Do you know kids (people) who seem to get away with cheating? Stealing? Lying? They’re not really getting away with anything. It may seem that way for a while, but God knows what’s going on, and He says to trust in Him. Keep doing what you know is right. He will reward you for it.
