Evil vs. Good

Today’s Reading – Psalms 37-38

Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. (Psalms 37:3-6 NLT)

In today’s reading, David contrasts good and evil. He shows the benefits of being good and obeying The Lord. The evil are described as having temporary gain but facing judgment and ruin. The good have an eternal reward.

Application to me – David says that we should not worry about those who do evil. I spend time worrying about why some who do evil prosper and protecting myself from them. David reminds us to trust in the Lord’s protection. I need to remember that. Also, I need to evaluate my decisions to be sure I am not trusting in something that may be run by someone who is evil and is headed to ruin.
