Don’t envy sinners,but always continue to fear the Lord.You will be rewarded for this;your hope will not be disappointed. Proverbs 23:17- 18 The Holy Bible The New Century Version
There has been so many times in my youth that I envied the sinners. It seemed like they were having all the fun partying and having all kinds of sex.
I wanted so much to join them but knew it was not what Jehovah wanted in my life.
Now, in my elder years I see them as destroyed shells of men and women. Their minds and bodies destroyed by the “ good living “.
There has been so many times I see the stinking filthy rich eat at expensive restaurants while I was eating instant soup or while they were wearing designer clothes while I was wearing second hand clothes or while they were living in mansions while I was living in a tent.
But in reflection they were very lonely, depressed and unfulfilled in their lives because they got their wealth in dishonest means. They were taking hands full of medications.
I on the other hand live a simple life that is in harmony with The Holy Spirit my Divine Mentor. I do not regret it for a moment, especially now in my elder years. We have accomplished so much in my life and through my life that could only be accomplished by walking in harmony with His guidance.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for blessing me to have faith in Your daily provisions instead of wasting my life chasing after dead gods ( physical pleasure ). I praise You in the name of He who is the only provision I need to enter Heavens Gate, Jesus Christ. Amen
