Christian Devotional – May 22, 2018

It’s hard watching evil people seem to prosper and to be rewarded for doing things thst we know to be wrong.  It doesn’t seem fair and it can make it feel like all the good things we try to do in obedience to the Lord don’t count. Read Psalm 73.

When I pondered to understand this, It was troublesome in my sight Until I came into the sanctuary of God; Then I perceived their end.
Psalms 73:16‭-‬17 NASB

Asaph felt that way too. He wondered why he had spent so much time and energy to be obedient to God when it seems like the evil people have more fun. Then comes verses 16 and 17. Those who live in rebellion to God have simply traded temporary pleasure for eternal pain. They are receiving their reward now, but we will look to receive our reward externally. This time that we spent here is nothing compared to the time that we will have in eternity. Are we living for the here and now or for the eternal?
