Psalm 37:1-2 (NIV), “1 Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; 2 for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.”
Psalm 37 is my favorite Psalm. Since I really love it, I read it often. It always encourages me to keep moving forward in Christ. We do see a lot of evil going on today. We also see many who seem to be getting away with their evil acts. There is much harm being done to innocent people both young and old. It seems as if the foolishness is never ending, and that some people live just to make others miserable. However we must hold fast and not give up. We must not adopt their evil ways. Although to us it may seem that God’s justice is slow in coming, He said in 2 Peter 3:9 that He is not slow. He said He is just giving people time to repent because He does not want anyone to perish (another example of His loving nature). Those who choose evil and do not turn to Jesus Christ and repent, will soon wither and die away. So when it comes to evildoers…Do Not Fret.
