Don't Envy The Evil

Take a moment to meditate upon the message of Proverbs 24:1-2.

It can be extremely tempting at times to “envy” the “evil.”   We know what they’re doing.   We know it’s wrong.   But we fantasize about what it would be like to be them, or at least to be “with them.”

Remember throughout your day that you have no reason to be ashamed of standing with and for the Truth.   Those who live unrighteously may appear to have it all, but don’t forget this wise statement.   You live for God, and one day, you will be the envy of the evil.
