Ps 37 David counsels “us” on how to handle life when the bad guy wins, and you are striving to do good, and it seems that you have lost out. You strive to save your money and shop frugally, yet the guy next door has it all. But does he really? Let’s take a look. David says those guys “seem” to succeed, but in reality, they are the guys who are living hand to mouth every day of the week. If you could look at their bank accounts, you would see that reality!
David speaks to those who don’t see the glitter and glamour. He says don’t fret three times! Instead, trust God. Commit your future to the Lord. Wait patiently for Him. Don’t envy! When Peter complained: we have left all to follow you; what’s in it for us, Jesus promised blessings which he enumerated in the Sermon on the Mount [Matt 5:3-11]
Trust in the Lord, Delight in the Lord. Today, don’t fret, don’t envy. And count your blessings, name them one by one, and you will see what God has done!
