Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.
But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold.
For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
They have no struggles;
Their bodies are healthy and strong.
They are free from the burdens common to man;
They are not plagued by human ills.
Therefore pride is their necklace;
They cloth themselves with violence.
From their callous hearts comes iniquity;
The evil conceits of their minds know no limits.
They scoff, and speak with malice;
Their mouths lay claim to heaven,
And their tongues take possession of the earth.
Therefore their people turn to them
And drink up waters in abundance.
They say, “How can God know? Does the Most High have knowledge?”
This is what the wicked are like—
Always carefree, they increase in wealth.
Psalm 73:1-12 NIV
The idea of rich people abusing their power, thinking they know more than God, or having no regard for other people is not lost on the Psalmist. Yes, these people may increase in status, success, and wealth as defined by the world’s standards, but that is not the end of their fate.
This humble reminder is my thought of meditate today. I meditate on these words and share my thoughts not to encourage support of one candidate on another. I have no political alliances.
