Christian – Don’t Envy The Ungodly

Do you ever look at how non-Christian people live and you think, “Lord, they seem to be doing well. What about me?”
Many Christians have thought that.
But, Proverbs 3:17-18 says, “Don’t envy sinners, but always continue to fear the Lord. You will be rewarded for this; your hope will not be disappointed.”
Don’t envy sinners….even though things seem to go well for them. Don’t envy sinners because we will reap what we sow.
Maybe you are struggling with this. A non-Christian is making more money…has a nicer home…takes nice trips…
I once heard of an agnostic farmer who wrote to the editor of his local newspaper, who was a Christian. He said; “In defiance of your God I plowed my fields this year on Sunday, I disked and fertilized them on Sunday, I planted them on a Sunday, I cultivated them on Sunday, and I reaped them on Sunday. This October I had the biggest crop I have ever had. How do you explain that?”
The editor replied: “God does not always settle his accounts in October.”
Christian, don’t envy simners. God doesn’t settle everything on this earth.
